Turn off canon flash.
<snip>
Okay - using your sequence, the flash does not fire in manual mode for me either.

But why did you do the third step (above)- turn off canon flash.    If I leave the flash in Auto mode then enable manual flash in the CHDK menus, I can take pictures in a dark room at the three different manual levels and get three completely different levels of brightness.

So that part is okay - but if the camera does not think it needs to fire the flash when you have manual mode enabled,  it will not take a picture at all.

I think this is an issue with CHDK in general rather than the SD940 port.

Oh, ok. Thanks for that.
I turned it off because i thought it might interfere, etc.
The reason i turned it off, is because i assumed that "override" mean override!

Can someone verify bracketing actually works on the the SD940 with 1.00E
(Extra Photo Operations / Bracketing in continuous mode / TV bracketing value [] )

Hi there. I have a 1.00E and a 1.03B. I can confirm that bracketing does not work on the 1.00E and does work on the 1.03B in  I think it's something more fundamental because I can't get interval timers working either.

It seems that the script will stop working after a shoot command has been issued. No basic errors, CHDK thinks the script is still running because pressing the shutter again gives the *** INTERUPTED ***

The first shoot does work but nothing after that. It's like the scripting engine isn't getting a callback (although I have no idea what's going on under the hood)

This is the scipt I tried:

print "started"
sleep 3000
print "slept once, about to shoot..."
shoot                                                       -- shoot works but nothing below executes
print "shot once, gonna sleep"
sleep 3000
print "slept again, about to shoot..."
shoot

I've had loads of projects on lately so sorry I couldn't reply sooner.

Three questions :
1) Do you have the latest builds from the autobuild server on both cameras ?
2) Does the script you tried work on the 1.03B but not the 1.00E ? Or not work on both cameras ?
3) Tell me more about interval timers ?  Do you mean the custom timer in the Canon menu or something in CHDK ?

TIA

HI WaterWingz.

1) it's the respective 0.9.9-1206-full_BETA on both cameras. Downloaded at the weekend
2) works fine on 1.03b but not on 1.00e
3) Interval timers simply take a picture at a given interval. Great for time lapse etc. UltraInterval works well on 1.03b (get the later more compact version)

Basically the script will bomb out after a shoot is issued. If you have any pointers I could look at tweaking the port.

Many Thanks.

hmmm ... tried the script on my 1.03c.   The second shoot never happens but the script does terminate.

Here's what worked better :

Code: [Select]
rem Test Shooting2
@title Shoot Test 
print "started - sleeping 2 seconds"
sleep 2000
print "sleep over, about to shoot..."
shoot                             
print "shot once, gonna sleep 2 seconds again"
sleep 2000
print "slept again, about to shoot again..."
shoot
print "shot again, gonna sleep 2 seconds again"
sleep 2000

Not even sure where to begin.  I'll play a bit and get back to you here.

Interesting. Both yours and mine work fine on the 1.03b but bomb out on the 1.00e. I wonder if the 1.03c has a similar problem with shoot? did your script execute both shoots on 1.03c? Have you tried ultraintervalometer by the way? a handy script to have.

I got both shoots on the 1.03c with my script.  With your script I only got the first shoot. 

Gives me some things to look into anyway.
