i tried the video mode and it also works, but i have a request for a new feature.

you should make an option to continue recording the video until no motion is detected, this would be useful for something like a surveillance camera.

You mean like this old thing right here? http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1596.0.html

...i haven't messed with this motion detection stuff since i had my old sd1000 (before i broke it and got an a590is), does anyone remember how to test the reaction time of the camera? wasn't it some program that puts bars across the screen?

CHDK wikia: Software # Motion Detection ...it's all there  ;)

*Edit: --> use lower ISO, e.g. 100 & enable the flash, then (with the right settings) you'll get your slipper sharp & clear - not looking like an UFO  :D

thanks! i'll check that link out.

ha i know flash would make it crisper, but the delay is much longer with flash enabled, the slipper was out of the FoV before it fired the flash to take the pic. that seems to be the only downfall so far..

I just tested both MDFB-080716 and MDFB-080914 Scripts on my A460 PS Camera.
Both doing very well without and with the Flash !
I'm with  last  a460-100d-0.8.10-638 CHDK Release.
To start working MDBF-080914 I must delete Config file first.
Thak You very much fudgey for this very nice work !

I just tried MDFB-080914 on the 638 Release with my IXUS 800IS with ISO100 and flash on and according to the web based test I get around 250-270ms delay which isn't so good.

This matches the results I was getting when trying to throw things past the camera. It would react, just to slowly to actually capture anything.

Any suggestions? Thanks, I only found out CHDK can finally run on my camera yesterday and I'm incredibly impressed with what can be done.

I tried to load the script (main menu>scripting parameters>load script from file)
Nothing happens.

Are you actually starting the script? In normal REC mode, press and release the ALT button and then shoot.

Camera  S2IS
Firware GM1.00F
CHDK Autobuild 0.7.1, revision #548.

I put the following scripts in the Scripts folder of CHDK
accurate_intervalo.bas
Lightning script.bas
long-exp-clicker.bas
ShutterSpeedAB.bas
tv_uni_e.lua
MDFB-080914-VideoButtonModels.bas

When I tried to run these scripts (main menu>scripting parameters>load script from file) only ShutterSpeedAB.bas & tv_uni_e.lua were recognised by chdk

Can somebody help?


I would suggest you try renaming the files.  Remove all "-" (dashes).  I shortened my file names since my screen only displays about 14 characters total of a file name.
Before you do that, just for curiosity, look at the file size entry next to the file name within the script load menu.  Does it display 3 question marks instead of numbers?  Does it do this on all files that don't load?  That's how mine looked and they wouldn't load until I changed the file names.  After changing the names, the file size also displayed correctly.

Thanks, mastersvaulter, I had the exact same setup and problem as beegeevee and renaming the file got it working. Wish I had found your post hours ago!
