Does the camera show the "busy" message after shooting at iso400?
Yes. Extra noise reduction, I guess.
That's my thought as well. I guess it might affect the timing.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I wasn't able to reproduce this on any of my cams.

Quote
After some tries, rs -quick worked with a dark scene, got stuck with a relatively bright one
How bright? My tests ended up with between 1/60th and 1/200th.

Settings I used
P mode
ISO 400-1600, depending on cam, set in camera UI not rs options
Drive mode: single
Remote shoot with jpeg only.

edit:
I wasn't really expecting to reproduce since my cameras are different generations, this is mainly for future reference.

It wasn't a systematic test series, "bright" was simply my monitor screen...

edit: I updated to r650 and now have a path problem with rsint. It does save image to PC but not to the folder\filename set with path
Code: [Select]
path C:/test/filenamebut to the folder above the chdkptp.exe file
Has there been a syntax change for the path command?

No, I broke it :(

I checked in a workaround in revision 656

Regarding key shortcuts / accelerators, you can also add your own key handlers to controls or the main dialog. See gui.lua inputtext:k_any() for an example.
I added these lines and it seems to be working. Of course it only works when the cursor is set in the command field.
Code: [Select]
elseif k == iup.K_F8 then
gui.execquick('click("video")')
elseif k == iup.K_F9 then
gui.execquick([[
local rec,vid = get_mode()
if rec and not vid then
shoot()
else
if vid then
press('shoot_half')
sleep(200)
end
click('shoot_full')
end
]])
elseif k == iup.K_F11 then
gui.execquick('click("zoom_out")')
elseif k == iup.K_F12 then
gui.execquick('click("zoom_in")')
end
I'm not too sure with the code. I simply copied and pasted  :-)
Thank you for your help.

If you are mucking with transforms and want to reset, use !gui.live.icnv.dccnv:Transform(nil)
To mirror, you can use
Code: [Select]
!width=gui.live.icnv.dccnv:GetSize();gui.live.icnv.dccnv:TransformScale(-1,1);gui.live.icnv.dccnv:TransformTranslate(-width,0)
I added the lines in two spots:
Code: [Select]
width=gui.live.icnv.dccnv:GetSize()
gui.live.icnv.dccnv:TransformScale(-1,1)
gui.live.icnv.dccnv:TransformTranslate( -width,0)

if lv and lv._frame then
*snip*
end
--width=gui.live.icnv.dccnv:GetSize()
gui.live.icnv.dccnv:TransformScale(-1,1)
gui.live.icnv.dccnv:TransformTranslate( -width,0)
I'm sure it's not the best way. Honestly, I understand the codes not much. I only tried and error   :)
If I put them in one of the spots only it starts flicking.:(

Hi there!

First of all i want to thank you  a lot for making dreams come true ;-)

Today i bought a PS 1100IS and tried  chdkptp and it is kinda messed up. I already successful made a a590IS work with it. But with the 1100 i dont get from play mode into rec mode. It sounds like it went into rec mode but the display and function is like play mode. Is i press half shoot it goes into recmode but still with problems. The Screen ist mixed up as seen in the screenshoots attached. If i press half shoot the screen looks fine for a few seconds, but then goes back mixed up. I tried different usbports - no change. Everything works fine with the 590. Also functions go weird sometimes. I cant fully reproduce it, because it is so messed up. The graphics of the camera (not chdk) stay wrong, but chdk graphics look fine and the clock runs.

Tell me if i should try somehing.

Cheers
Toby

It now kinda works for me. Still got little problems. Sometimes i have to hit shoothalf when i changed from play into record to make it work. I encountered a new issue where i put the camera in AEL to set the tv as i like. When i hit shootfull the camera doesnt respond  to every button from Hardware and Software. If i hit a button in the software (chdkptp) it tells me a script is already running.

As youar camera an A1100, or ixus80_sd1100 ?
What CHDK and CHDKPTP versions are you using?
What OS are you using?

From the screenshots, it looks like the functions for full live view support are not implemented so the dimensions and palette are wrong. Looking at the code, this is true for A1100. The cut off live view looks like it might be due to digital zoom. This wouldn't happen if the viewport size functions were implemented.

I don't really understand what you are trying to describe here. The screenshots show the display functions aren't fully implemented. The camera appears to be in rec mode.

How are you trying to put the camera in AEL?
