Intervalometer with Fast Shutter Speed

Hi Everyone....thanks heavens i have found this forum...i have had a good search on here and can't seem to find what i'm looking for so i thought i'd ask.

I'm doing some Kap and have just bought a cheap new A480...i have found an intervalometer script and have had that working fine, but what i really need is something to set the shutter speed to max as well,  as some of my pictures are coming out blurred.

I know nothing about writing stuff in CHDK right now and would really apppreciate some help or pointing to a script that will do both jobs at once.

Many thanks in advance

Ty

If you set a shutter speed override you can get faster shutter speeds. This will work with any intervalometer script. You will probably want a shutter speed faster than 1/250th of a second to stop the motion blur. The available light and your ISO setting will define how fast of a shutter speed you can set.

Shutter Speed overrides are found in the Extra Photo operations menu.

I wrote a tutorial on setting up shutter speed overrides:
