PhyrePhoX, you mean, like... a build? ;-)
(Can't really be a build, especially the DataGhost-related parts... I hope the collaborative build guys or even trunk might be interested in merging some)

Anyway, I suppose "General Discussion and Assistance" would be the place for that?

general discussion and assistance sounds about right. :)

I uploaded a new revision. It fixes two bugs and a previously unknown memory leak, and the code should be cleaner (as in, commented).

It also tries to avoid camera crashes, but unfortunately they still seem to occur. I guess they might be related to the fact that I'm deleting files under the OS's nose, I'm not sure really.

This time I might have fixed the nasty crashing bug - or not.

Please test this, as the crashing occurs unpredictably - if it still occurs -, and I need to know if it does occur.

One problem that's certainly still there is that, if you release shoot-full but still keep it half pressed, and then resume taking photographs, BSS bails out. It's actually not a problem, it's the "safety" routine that thinks there's something wrong and disables BSS just in case.

But the question is, should this behavior trigger anything special? I was thinking, for instance, that half-releasing the shutter button could mean "I've changed my mind, please keep all the shots I've taken". What's your preference?

Couldn't this feature be merged in colab.? Please? :D
I cannot test this since I own an S2.
I'm thinking the useful trigger for this function would be to use the burst-mode selector button and when cycling through modes it should also display BSS. This is to avoid hunting through the menu for that specific feature.

I'm afraid I cannot work on this very much this month, as I'm on dial-up and not on my computer...

Yes yes yes. It would even be useful on my SD800IS when shooting manually in museums...
Failing that how can I merge this into my build and can I get it to work on SD800IS (perhaps PROPCASE 177???)?
