Quick question!
Has anyone else had problems using the back_light command on the S5IS?
The following function works on my S2IS but not on my S5IS.
function Shot()
   sleep(100)
   click("shoot_full")
   repeat
      sleep(1)
      until get_shooting()~=true
   sleep(500)
   if d==0 then set_backlight(d) end
   end
It doesn't matter whether d = 1 to 0, the backlight stays on.

On my S2IS, '0' turns off the backlight??????

Any thoughts?

Possibly this function isn't found correctly on S5.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks reyalp for suggestion!
Any confirmation from other S5IS users?
Sure would be nice to save power during timelapses.
Anyone looking into this - please???
