just a blinking led

Hi,

I just need a blinking led (once) to modify the lightning script so that when it takes a photo it also blinks the blue led for, let's say, half a second.

I found where I have to modify the code (tested it with some print "I got a photo").

The problem is that I was not able to switch on and off any led.

I tried with:

set_led 8 1 120
sleep 500
set_led 8 0 120

And with many other values of led number instead of 8 (4,5,6,7) and with or without the brightness value (120 in this case).

I'm sure I'm missing something very stupid...but here I am!  :(

Ok, I understood why...simply my camera doesn't support set_led  >:(

It's an ixus 80is. I read about the problems here: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=2044.300

I really am very sad...unless i can connect the camera port in order to make an external led blink, I cannot use my camera to control the shot of an external EOS  :(

Just a suggestion: you should add your camera model & firmware version to your signature, you'll get more / faster responses then... ;)
