    If you want a challenge see if you can work out why shooting_set_focus doesn't work.
    It should allow the focus distance to be set from scripts; but I can't get it to work and I can't figure out what's wrong :)

    Regards,
    Phil.
    CHDK ports:
      sx30is (1.00c, 1.00h, 1.00l, 1.00n & 1.00p)
      g12 (1.00c, 1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
      sx130is (1.01d & 1.01f)
      ixus310hs (1.00a & 1.01a)
      sx40hs (1.00d, 1.00g & 1.00i)
      g1x (1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)

    some random infos (maybe you have them already, but i'll write them down for a quick reference -- and remember i am currently diverting from trunk :():
    i'm seeing that while in MF, the set_focus thing seems to work (with infinite ~9000)
    PROPCASE_SUBJECT_DIST1 and PROPCASE_SUBJECT_DIST2 are ok.
    PROPCASE_REAL_FOCUS_MODE doesn't change when in MF, while PROPCASE_FOCUS_MODE goes to 1.
    MoveFocusLensToDistance is correctly at 0xffb71f98 (while in MF, it changes the focus as expected).

    When with PROPCASE_FOCUS_MODE=1 and not in MF, set_focus works but then camera autofocus again. I have set CAM_HAS_MANUAL_FOCUS. Maybe shooting_get_focus_mode() returns a wrong value?
    Investigating..

    edit: in the end, SET_NOW seems to work. SET_LATER crashes the cam! :)
    edit2: i now see i need the expdrive task enabled in order to make it work with SET_LATER (right?).. i had it disabled because of "keep it tiny"...let's try enabling it.
    edit3: meanwhile, i built a svn export of g12 from trunk (i had to change some BL _label to BL sub_address in order to fix some relocation error when compiling...maybe my gcc is too old?) and i see lua shoot() is indeed working. luar is hanging the stack, but i guess that's not a priority.

    I am currently working on a lightweight build that supports motion-detection (with the added SDM features including universal movie capture), HDR bracketing, focus-stacking, time-lapse single-shot (including fixed-shots or fixed-time burst), time-lapse with Tv bracketing, focus bracketing or both, DNG single or continuous shots, stereo slit camera and streak camera that builds the image in the camera.

    So far, it does not use ANY menus.

    <OT>
    Thank heaven for that.
    Yes, indeed: thank heaven for people like ewavr, reyalP, philmoz, rudi and many (!) other CHDK developers & workers - without such people CHDK would only be a poor copy of what is is !

    You should follow the development threads carefully and you should try to understand things before you're posting such nonsense  >:(

    cBasic: without the great development work on this, none of the newer camera ports would be possible !
    "a lot less clicking thru menus" - aren't you able to read the documentation and use the user menu ?
    "so understandably I want PTP" - don't shed tears here in a HACKER forum; talk to CANON, ask them why they give you only a "lightweight build" (don't people like you normally call this "user friendly" ?) implementation of PTP ?

    CHDK seems to be engrossed in a series of Kafka-esque crazes that have huge promise but don't really produce much (remember CBasic?)
    Without the cbasic work, none of the recent cameras (including G12) would be dumped, never mind ported.  So yeah, total waste of time time  ::)
    Don't forget what the H stands for.

    That sounds mental, a lot less clicking thru menus then? Thank heaven for that. CHDK seems to be engrossed in a series of Kafka-esque crazes that have huge promise but don't really produce much (remember CBasic?) like optional scripting and exmem, not to mention PTP. I mean what is the point of a cut down version? My G9 can use the Canon PC software, my Ixus 95 cannot, so understandably I want PTP to replicate the Canon SW on my '95, not a half-baked version.
    The CHDKDE people seem to be making the running right now- time for a merger?

    I can't speak for anyone else; but I do this for me, I work on the stuff that I find interesting and fun - if it benefits others then that's a bonus.

    You're more than welcome to do some actual development on CHDK and contribute in that way - then you can choose what bits get improved.

    Alternatively you could set up a commercial venture around this and pay us to do it - then you get to call the shots and decide what is in and out.
    My consultancy rate is $1,600 per day :D
