Another similar crash happens when you try to use the manual focus during video recording and apply fast_zoom. The reason why this is happening is because the fast_zoom key isn't diasabled in alt mode. All ports until this one had physw_status up to physw_status, this camera look like has up to physw_status and the value in physw_status changes when using fast_zoom. I tried to fix that without success for now.
has the issue with the fast_zoom been solved? Would be nice to have two speeds for zooming
Anyone with experience connecting the sx220 to an RCA monitor while shooting video? The manual suggests this should be possible with both video and stills recording.
and #define CAM_AF_SCAN_DURING_VIDEO_RECORD.I removed that because the camera crashes when zooming after calling _MakeAfScan. I found that _DoAflock acts in a similar way but also crashes when I set the camera to manual focus and try to zoom. To avoid trouble I just removed it. Maybe we can find a solution for this later.
so modes available for shooting are either or of
a)continuous AF+optical zoom (stock behaviour)
b)manual focus(after getting into MF mode)+optical zoom by recompiling with CAM_USE_ZOOM_FOR_MF option set to 1
It appears as though the focus lock (by entering MF mode?) -> afscan -> optical zoom -> afscan work flow is crashing the camera. right?
