    Yea, I followed this from above:


    A) Set camera to continuous-shooting mode
    Set 'save stack' to '1', 'num of 1/3 EV steps' to '3', 'bracket exposures' to '3', 'single/cont/timer' to '1'.
    Start script.
    On completion, the approximate time required for one bracketing sequence will be indicated.
    This is particularly useful when doing auto focus-bracketing.
    In the CHDK/STACKS folder there will be a text file showing the Tv settings used for the bracketing sequence


    However I only get a flashing orange led and then nothing. You know how those green numbers come up when you run the tlapse, they dont if I do these settings.

    Copy-and-paste the time_lapse.bas parameters (practically the entire script !) here but change the parameter values to what you are using now.

    Heres the code I'm using. Actaully, its sort of working now. You see what I was trying to achieve is to get the same effect one would get if you go into bracketing menu and set EV to 1/3 and then set TV to like 3 times and keep the shoot pressed.

    All I wanted was to achieve the same as above with a script, after putting my cam on a tripod, cause as we all know, my IS is shot..lol

    Anyway with below parameters I seem to achieve the same sort of bracketing.

    Code: [Select]
    @title Time-lapse
    @param a first delay minutes
    @default a 0
    @param b first delay seconds
    @default b 0
    @param c shoot interval minutes
    @default c 0
    @param d shoot interval seconds
    @default d 0
    @param e number of repeats
    @default e 0
    @param f endless mode N/Y    0/1
    @default f 1
    @param g single/cont/time/burst
    @default g 1
    @param h Tv exposures
    @default h 20
    @param i Focus exposures
    @default i 0
    @param j bracket Tv/foc/Both   0/2
    @default j 2
    @param k light/dark/alternate   0/1/2
    @default k 2
    @param l num of 1/3 EV steps
    @default l 1
    @param m equal/auto/digi  0-2
    @default m 0
    @param n focus-step
    @default n 0
    @param p digiscope focus ref
    @default p 0
    @param q blank screen N/Y 0/1
    @default q 0
    @param r shutdown N/Auto/USB 0/1/2
    @default r 0
    @param s save stack N/Y 0/1
    @default s 0
    @param t Sunrise mode
    @default t 0
    @param u TXT/CSV 0/1
    @default u 0

    print "Stop Scr when LED"
    print "is GREEN or"
    print "is RED."
    auto_focus_all
    time_lapse a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r, s, t, u
    end

    Basically what I changed are:

    Code: [Select]
    endless  - 1
    single  - 1
    tv exp  - 30
    bracket tv  - 2
    light/dark   - 2
    num of 1/3  - 2

    Also Ive noticed it takes 3 shots at a single Tv value, why 3? Why not 5?

    Oh and setting @param j bracket Tv/foc/Both  to 0 (tv) does nothing, it does what I said in an earlier post, i.e flash an orange and then does nothing.

    If you can suggest any improvement so I get closest possible brackets, both light and dark, that would be great. Otherwise the above seem to do for now.

    Tv exposures should be set to bracketing shots per shooting 'phase', say 3.

    Bracket Tv/Focus/Both should be '0' for Tv bracketing.

    Number of 1/3EV I would set to at least '3' (you have it set to '1').

    The time-interval between each capture 'phase' is measured from the start of each group of shots.
    So, we have to allow for the time it takes for capturing and storing the shots.

    Try a shoot interval of 5 seconds.


    You can also write :-

    line_1 " Stop Scr when LED"
    line_2 "#is GREEN or"
    line_3 "!is RED."


    (Notice the space before 'Stop').

    As I said earlier, setting it to 0 only flashes orange led momentarily and nothing is done.

    @microfunguy, the latest file "SDM...19" has a major flaw. When in PLAYBACK mode it keeps on restarting after every 30 seconds. I didnt realise this earlier, but today, sharing photos with a friend it caused a major problem, rendering the playback mode literally useless.

    Therefore I reverted back to the "SDM...18", the one that wont let me turn cam on in playback. This one, though is hell to start up if I forget to turn it off in LOW LIGHT MODE, does indeed let me go into playback AFTER I've been in record mode, and it lets me browse for as long as I want.

    Therefore the version "SDM_1.86_IXUS105_100d_18" is so far the most stable one.

    What happens if you only switch to PLAYBACK mode after longer than 30 seconds ?

    In that case it works fine.

    However I'm still sticking to last version for now.

    Also, in both versions, after going from playback mode back into record mode, it gives E32 error after 1 min. Think I might have mentioned this, not sure. Anyway my routine is to always switch cam off if I was in playback. This only happens if I was in record mode first, then in playback, then back in record, in this order only.

    Later today I will make a version that only disables IS error if at least 30 seconds have passed AND you are in Record mode.
