Hi,

Using fbonomi shutter magic (see http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,2877.0.html ) wrapped into a selfmade timelapse script the IXUS 80 performs very nicely.

Since an RC helicopter is a rather shaky environment I implemented a de-coupled camera mount to keep the bad vibes away... ;)

I am quite satisfied with the results so far. :)

Thanks guys! :)

BTW Here is the link to the script I used. Its a simple interval script rigged together from some other scripts & sniplets I found in this great forum and of course the shutter code:

Guess it will only work with an IXUS80IS... Don't forget to turn the ND filter to off before running it! ;)

No remote - it worked automatic, every 3 seconds.
