Dial move for A470??

Hello everyone!

        Is there any way you can simulate the dial move to the left/rigth with the A470?
        I'm runing an script for KAP and I want to take several pictures, them move to shooting video and back to shooting pictures. I just tried with wheel_right/wheel_left and it didn't work.

        Am I missing something? (FYI I'm using SDM ver 1.81).
        Thanks and regards

Wheel would be a jog dial, not mode dial.

In SDM there are different commands to set movie or still mode, not sure what they are or if a470 is supported, but they should be in the SDM manual.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

shoot_movie_for

I did ask the original A470 CHDK porter to test these but he never replied.

If they do not work, contact me directly with an email address and we will sort it out.

Looks like it is not working :-( :-( :-(
When using movie_mode it changes to movie but after pressing shoot_full it turn off the camera.
When using shoot_movie_for it turns off the camera right away.

Thanks for your reply.

How can we contact the original porter?

It works on my A460, we should be able to get it working.

Run the scripts I sent in a personal message.

Already did. Playback works fine, but video makes the same result (turn off after switching to video and start shooting).  :(

Issue solved. Microfunguy provided me with a new version of the DISKBOOT.BIN file that solved the issue.
This will be included in the new release.
Thanks Microfunguy for all your help. You rock!
