Since I'm asking about features, how about another?  I was just reading about the sony's ability to stitch several photos together to create a panorama photo with just one shutter click.  Maybe click shutter to launch script to take continuous photos (specified in menu) and then stitch them together at the end?  I guess panning speed needs to be taken into consideration and may need to be adjusted per individual.  Wonder if it's possible to do in camera stitching like that via script? Please move this post to somewhere else if you think it's more appropriate, thanks.

Apparently, it is possible to turn off the S90 LCD in SDM using the command:

turn_backlight_off

Is there an equivalent command for CHDK scripts?

Also, any ETA on when the latest changes (e.g. "Lock jogdial" & "Lock keys") make it to the Autobuild?

Thank you!

Thank you! :) fe50 and ERR99!

I know this is not-S90 specific. Please feel free to direct me to a more appropiate thread.

Is there a way to execute a command as soon as I interrupt a script? I would like to "set_backlight 1" as soon as I interrupt.

Thanks a million. You guys are great!

I love my S90, but really miss the viewfinder. I just bought a G11 yesterday.

I might be selling my S90, which is accessorized to the max.

It has the grip.

The new model filter adapter with six filters - two ND, one 4 pt. star, one circular polarizer, one UV, and one custom made white balancing filter. Filters are in filters stackers, two stacks of three, making it more portable

Three battery packs - two are OEM Canon, one is aftermarket.

Two chargers, both OEM.

A 8 GB Sandisk SD card.

And a TAMRAC carry pouch that hold most of the accessories.

I have customized the camera with clear grippy tape to aid in hold the slippery camera. I'll snap some picture of it a bit later.

I'll post more if anyone is interested.

It's been a wonderful camera and I love the picture quality, but find myself struggling in bright outdoor light to see what I photographing. I decided to buy the G11 because of the viewfinder.

uBasic: when a running script is stopped with the shutter button, CHDK tries to jump to a label called
:restore
and executes the code there; so place a jump section :restore with your code at the end of your script.

For Lua you have to define a function called restore() instead.

hqasem,

If you get a script working with the lcd off, let us know what it is or upload it for others to consider. 

Thanks

Hi Sabogj. It was very straight-forward. My script waits for a USB remote pulse to trigger the camera. Please find the script in the link below:

http://ostro.ced.berkeley.edu/~crisr/discuss/comments.php?DiscussionID=2736

It has couple of parameters to delay running the script (Min:Sec) and to keep the LCD Backlight on or off while running.

Another interesting (Lua) script is "metronom.lua" which sets the backlight off (when you press Set) and on (when you press Menu). It is not capable; however, to restore backlight state when the script is interrupted. But that can easily be fixed via restore() function (thank you fe50!).

Cheers!

Chdk updates. 

I downloaded the latest beta release for the s90 (build s90-100c-0.9.9-894_BETA, date 5/22)

Both the lock dial and jogkey options are not in there.  I figured the newer release was done to fix some bugs, but I hate to lose the lock dial and jogkey options.   Is there any reason why these 2 options are not in the latest release?

Thanks,

G
