I recently finished putting a video together with YASS. You can see that I set the threshold for guess mode too low and the highest ISO a little high. However, it worked brilliantly! No focus problems at all, very little noise (just the closing of the shutter, no focus sounds per shot) and it runs stable for about 12 hours when the card memory runs out (8GB). I used a Canon A590.

You know... I was fiddling around with a lot of things but I didn't end up making any meaningful changes. I attached the script I used in an earlier post. The backlight might save a little battery life but choosing good batteries or power source is probably more effective anyway. In the end, the most important thing I needed to do was set the variables correctly, since the purpose of my video was very different from a stationary point of view.

The working scripts people post tend to work across cameras (the exceptions to that I couldn't be sure of, sorry!) and for this script I found that I really had to study the language and commands used here to configure it, it's not all that intuitive to me. It's been awhile since I looked at this stuff though, busy life you know? The worst of it, for those of us learning, is that the information is scattered in a lot of places!


Also (not sure if this applies to anyone really) I remember an issue with the script going through the guess mode for a 2nd time. The compensation factor doesn't reset, so if you go light>dark>light>dark, the second transition to dark will use the last compensation factor that was determined, which could make for a very abrupt transition. So for most people, this would never come up unless you are shooting through two nights without shutting it off.

I shoot 17651 images with the script during the last weekend, one shoot every 10sec, the night shots were unusable because the camera tried to focus on every lowlight shot.  I had the focus setting at 3 (inf)

do you know how can I leave the autofocus disabled?

try a different shooting mode and make sure it is not focusing for each shot when you start the script. I used Manual mode and set focus to infinity in the normal interface to be safe and it never tried to change focus

I have a Canon G-10 and it works OK  :) Look an example:

I have G12 and the script doesn't work. Right after starting it hangs the camera - screen is black, camera is not responding, it's dead until I press power button.
Other intervalometer scripts work fine, so I guess this must be something wrong with the yass2 script.

The script uses fixed propcase values (bad coding practice) so will only work for cameras that use the same propcase.   To fix this, you need to find and modify every set_prop function with the right values for your camera.

Is there some cheat-sheet table with propcase values, that I could use to modify the script?
Yass2 seems promising, I'd really like to try it out.
