Good job Edu. I'm still following the forum and the commits in the repo.
As you know I do not own the 400D anymore, though most users don't know.
Anyway I'm still available for questions/opinions/advices if you need them !

I will be around :)

Great news Edu. The 400D is still my main camera and will be while it continues to go strong. Not sure what other enhancements can be made to the already great 400Plus firmware but I look forward to trying them!

Still using 400p and very happy with it. Especially the prerecorded settings on the dial is a real timesaver.
I have just bought the S110 and installed chdk, and while the features are good and many and I like the small camera, I really miss the ease of use from the 400.

Thanks again for this fine piece of firmware.

very interesting project, thanks for development!

I just revitalized my 400d ... but note that using EOScard (unless under Win 7) you must remove all stuff it creates, before dropping the 400plus autoexec and language file, so may be somebody must change the "Preparing each card" section?

anyway, AUTO ISO works, apparently ...
i.e. you set it, point at something bright and it says e.g. 100 ISO, then point to something dark and it says e.g. 1600, you shoot and after that it says always 1600 even if your are pointing at the sun core!
OR
you set it, point at something bright and it says 100 ISO, then point to something dark and it says 1600, you click the ISO button, and after that AUTO ISO is killed

moreover, "Show ISO in Viewfinder" doesn't work at all and "DP for changing ISO" does nothing ...

suggestions to have AUTO ISO working and never going away?

BTW, puzzle captchas are funny

Unfortunately, EOSCard is maintained by someone not related to 400plus, and there is nothing we can do to improve that tool; I will change the documentation, thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, AutoISO is a bit slow to react to sudden changes in the scene; and I am afraid that there is not much we can do about that.

you set it, point at something bright and it says 100 ISO, then point to something dark and it says 1600, you click the ISO button, and after that AUTO ISO is killed

AutoISO means that 400plus decides the ISO; if you try to set a different ISO, then you no longer want 400plus to set the ISO, so AutoISO is disabled automatically. If you accidentally enter the ISO dialog, just press DP to reactivate AutoISO.

moreover, "Show ISO in Viewfinder" doesn't work at all and "DP for changing ISO" does nothing ...

"Show ISO in viewfinder" works for me, and it also works for many others, but it is a bit difficult to get used to it. Unless there is something broken in your camera (does the display switches off when you put the camera to your face?), I would suggest rereading the user guide and practising a bit more.

Sorry, but I do not know what "DP for changing ISO" is... I could not find it in the current user guide.

Hey

my name is Andy and i'm a new 400 plus user :)

I've got 3 questions:

1: Has someone translated the latest version into German? A lot of menus are still in English!
2: user's guide: German translation has a lot of errors ans is based on an old version of the user's guide. How can i help to translate it?
3. were can i find the ISO in viewfinder menu in the German menu?

Hopefully I've chosen the right topic ;)

As soon as I receive an update for a translation, I publish it as a new official release; so, the latest official release always contains the most recent translation for all languages. Unfortunately, translators are scarce, and some translations are outdated.

2: user's guide: German translation has a lot of errors ans is based on an old version of the user's guide. How can i help to translate it?

Get a Google account and send me the address (private messages are OK); I will give you write aces to the wiki. If you need help about how to format or update the page, just ask.

3. were can i find the ISO in viewfinder menu in the German menu?

ISO in viewfinder menu? There is a "ISO in viewfinder" feature, that can be enabled withe the "Use D-Pad" option, but there is no specific menu for it; here is the (English) documentation about this: https://code.google.com/p/400plus/wiki/UserGuide#ISO_In_Viewfinder

I'm looking for a 400D user to run a small test:
http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=14732.msg144057#msg144057

It's a portable autoexec.bin that prints "hello world" on all recent cameras, and there are some chances to work on 400D as well (but I don't have this camera to test it).

Hi,

Let me know if I can do sth. else.

Regards
Frank

Here's another test, just to make sure I'm calling the right display init routine. You should get the backlight enabled (probably something displayed as well, but that doesn't matter). The binary is only for 400D, and might cause damage if you try it on other cameras.

autoexec.bin

Source code:
Code: [Select]
    mov r0, #0
    bl 0xffff8cf0
    loop: b loop
