Hi

Would it be possible to create a script that enables/disables the jogdial?

ie

[ pseudocode c# like  :) ]
jogdial.enabled = !jogdial.enabled;

/kim - extreme novice!

Yes, a script to turn the jog dial lock on if off (and vice versa) would be nice.  Also would it be possible to exit <alt> mode upon pressing the shutter?  IE, exit <alt> mode as part of the script?  Do you think it's possible to do that ERR99?  or that not a scriptable function?  I might give it a try if u think it's possible, thx.

One step done, the crucial step is if there is a way to invoke a command to
halt the canon Jogdial task.  Is that something the programmer has to add? 
I think this script would be used by tons of s90 owners if it can do serve as an easy way to lock and unlock the jog dials in the back, it would certainly be my default script.  Thx

Hi!!! I was away from here for 2 months and it seems we now have GREAT news!

ERR99, I cannot say "thank you" enough times to express my gratitude! David, you too, because you are always present in most of the threads and giving precious hints and clues!

I just download all versions and will find my FW version and try it today.

I saw some people say something about minimun battery values... please be cautious on changing that, because in som kinds of batteries if it goes under a fixed minimum voltage it will not charge anymore and you will have a dead battery.

and a few pages back there was a guy that had one great idea: to have the ability to manually control the focus while recording video. this would be heaven! not just autofocus, but intentionally shift the focus away. but I don't know if this is even remotely possible...

Back with good news. 101a seems to be working just fine. In fact, it looks better than the SX110 ans A590 ports (my previous cams). I say so because in this one both the overrides AND video-zooming are working as expected. I just found that the S90 has some difficulties trying to change focus on movie mode, while the SX110 does this better after I zoom in while recording.

And what about the hardware limits of this cam using CHDK? Has anyone managed to find out the actual speed and aperture limits??

Hello all

First, many thanks for this beautiful piece of software !

I own a S90 for less that one week, and tried CHDK.  I'm a new user as this S90 is my first Canon point and shot camera. CHDK works fine, but it seems that the autoload does not work :

In the miscellaneous menu, I select "make card bootable" (or something like that). Then, I switch the SD card to be read only, but then, when I switch on the S90, CHDK do not automatically load.

Is this a restriction of current version as it is a beta ?

For information :
- my firmware version is 1.01B
- I wrote a perl script to write on the SD card at offset 40h "BOOTDISK" (I got this information from CHDK wiki). After that, the autoload works. I verified, CHDH did not write "BOOTDISK" on the sdcard after I select the menu entry "make card bootable"

Do you think autoload could work if I upload my firmware to 1.01C ?

Thanks in advance for any answer.

Hi rirethy.

I'm assuming you're using an SDHC card (8GB or larger). In my case, I wasn't able to get Autoload to work either (firmware 1.00C). So I Autoload with my 4GB and smaller cards, and I do manual firmware update for my 8GB and larger cards.

Earlier in the thread, someone suggested I use sdminst.exe, but that didn't work for me either as it behaves differently if I use an internal vs. external SD card reader with inconsistent results.

Would you share the Perl script that made Autoload work for you?

Thanks!
