Is 1.00B in the works?  Can't wait to try it out, even some alpha version.

Hi,
I got my new ixus 100 few days ago but can't figure how to store thing for building a user menu, any idea?

And I'm very interested into building a rear curtain function if possible. I don't know lots about programming for CHDK but can do assembler JAVA and C.
Does anyone know how to implement such a function?
I tried prop_case 64 but it is not working with this camera.

Another awsome feature will be to have pseudo manual focus to switch to hyperfocal focus mode, I'm trying to understand a bit more about CHDK and will let people know if I manage to do this with a script.

Thank a lot,

Wallace.

Hi all,
Ok I've found thatt half-shutter press saves item in user menu and the zoom lever can organise them which is cool.
Sadly the focus distance makes my camera crash...
The AEB works perfectly :)

Does anyone know what is the probem on focus distance override?
as I sais before I can code some things but don't really know where to start looking for...

Peace,

W.

I guess there's been some recent activity here, but I'm a new SD780 owner and having a hard time finding any clear documentation on using CHDK with this camera.

I have the energy and background as a tech writer to perhaps put together some clear, concise documentation, but I can't find the information myself.

I know people are using the software with this model successfully, but where do they find the instructions?

The standard instuctions fail because the SD780 doesn't have the 'shortcut' button, and the DISP button is used instead to access ALT menu where the CHDK settings reside, but I can't reliably control the camera and usually the screen ends up going black and I'm lost.

Where do I start?

Aside from the general CHDK documentation i think this thread is pretty much it. You can always ask HarpoMa, the person that is performing the port, questions directly.

What is the recommended way to create the bad pixel file for the SD780?  The show_bad_b app does not support the SD780 and I cannot seem to run the script on the camera to generate the file.  Can someone please provide the instruction necessary to create the file?  Thanks,

You need to run the script. If you tell us what happens when you try to run it, maybe someone can help you.

The camera must be in picture taking mode to run the script.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

When I navigate to the test directory that contains the badpixel.lua and select it.  I then get another page with several options, but I cannot find anything that actually looks like a way to execute the script.  I'm sure this is very basic, but I do not see the way to run the script.

You need to select the script, leave the menu (but stay in CHDK alt mode), and then press the shutter to run the script.

Hi HarpoMa - first, thanks for your incredible work in getting this running on the 100IS! Second, I have a small suggestion/request. I am finding the file browser very hard to read. I understand the colours might be hard-coded into core/gui_fselect.c. Not sure if this is a CHDK-wide default or specific to this camera, but would it be possible to use some combination with more foreground/background contrast in the next release? Otherwise I might try recompiling it myself.
