What camera setting can be scripted?

What settings can be scripted? For example can IS be turned on and off, or white balance set to auto? Could a script be used to reset the camera to my "normal" settings after using specialized settings. On the other hand, could a script be used to set up specialized settings that I might use for example star photos?

Most settings can be used or changed from within a script, there are several ways to do this:

a) call the related command directly - [1], [2]

b) change related PropertyCase values (read them with get_prop, write/change them with set_prop) (sample: [3])

c) use emulated keystrokes to select/change values through the Canon menus, e.g. like in this sample.

Using these three methods combined, you should be able to set up whatever you want...
