wow, Coutts! a much-needed vacation from the code to enjoy the build youve put together or just relax, but know that youve made my camera way awesome, thanks...

make sure you're taking a single silent pic, in 1080p recording or idle, hit the shutter half way to take a silent pic, it will say it saved a silent pic, it'll be a .422 file on your sd card.

put this file through the 422-jpg.py script:

Code: [Select]
python 422-jpg.pyand it will pop up a file open dialog, select the .422 file and it'll spit out a jpeg in the same folder as the 422 file.

if you have multiple 422 files to convert,
Code: [Select]
python 422-jpb.py /folder_path/.
the period says to do every 422 file in that folder.

I figured out the py script.  I didn't change it.  JPG's are all white.  To verify that the problem is in the camera I looked at the raw data with a hex editor.  All ff ff ff ff...  The camera says saved when I do half press.  But it saves all white, not what I see on the screen.  I've tried the modes you suggested.  I'm guessing the buffer is in a different place for me!

thats the same problem i had with i think version 1.4 but at that time i knew he just got it working and he mentioned the buffer address had to be figured out, with 1.5 i dont even get a conversion anymore it just says unknown file size, dont know what that is about i only checked cause i see everyone talking about silent pictures working, but also see he says he still got to get address right so i wasnt sure, so i tried it and get no conversion at this point.

Can I test the Lores buffer version/build?  Maybe it's more stable and the buffer is referenced by a pointer instead of our guessing?

in 1080p mode if you flip on magic zoom does it show anything? it will probably flicker when you first enable it, start/stop recording and it won't flicker until the next time you turn the camera on. not sure what causes this. but anyways magic zoom uses the same buffer so if you can see in magic zoom then you know silent pics are good.

Magic Zoom does not do anything in this Build.  User error?  No flicker.  I know for certain the 422 files are not good.  Can I try the Lores buffer with SP?
