Hi all. Just want to start off by thanking all the developers for your work. You guys rock!
Our company is working on a project where we are using an Ixus i95 to capture a timelapse of the construction of a ship.
We need the tiny camera to take one photo every 24 hours for about 6 months and we have already fitted it along with an ac power supply and a UPS. We have been running the Ultra-intervalometer script and it worked fine in testing for 48 hours. After its first week on location test we ran into a problem as the camera only took 2 pictures.
We would like to know if anyone else has had success trying something similar with this type of compact camera. Our primary conclusion is that it must have had a power cut sufficient enough to run through the power supplied by the UPS. We made this conclusion because when we got to the camera after a week the lens was still protruding in its "on" position but the camera was off.
Also, is there a time limit to which these small cameras can be left running? maybe a canon safety feature?
Thank you in advance for you time.
