I'm setting up my S95 for use as an aerial photography camera onboard a multi-rotored helicopter
, using CHDK to trigger the camera to take the photo. However, I'm a little disappointed that it seems to take the camera at least 4 seconds to process a photo once it's taken, before it takes me back to record mode. If I do the same thing using a normal SD card, it returns me to record mode after about a second. This is with the review mode set to 0 seconds, in both cases. Also, this happens for both JPEG and RAW images.
Is there anything I can do to reduce this delay? It's a real shame, as otherwise I'm thrilled at the neatness of using CHDK to trigger the camera to take the photos!
Any advice is most gratefully received. Thanks
Edit: I've just done some more experimenting and even when I'm not in CHDK mode (so I have standard menu access), there's still a 4 second delay (with a black screen, and a solid green status LED on the back) before I'm returned to the record screen.
I would imagine solving this problem would also solve my continuous-shooting problem ... ie, it doesn't work! With a normal SD card, the camera can take RAW photos at 1 photo per second, and JPEG photos at about 2 photos per second. With a CHDK-enabled card in, there's a 5 second delay between consecutive photos, and in fact, the camera completely seizes up after the second photo and it has to be rebooted!
Does anyone have an idea as to what might be going on here? Many thanks!
