Can someone please direct me to a link or give me instructions on how to set the intervalometer to take pictures every 5 seconds and how to set the shutter speed on the camera?

Please and thank you

You need to take a photo with your camera and then use my ACID app to locate and download the correct build. See http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/acid/acid.html

Once you've downloaded the correct build you need to install it (if using a Mac use my installer - see http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/clickpansdm/sdminst.html, otherwise use the Windows SDM installer or CardTricks.

Once you have SDM (or CHDK) installed you need to install and run an intervalometer script.

Use this http://www.zenoshrdlu.com/acid/acid.html to identify your firmware version.

Install CHDK.

Let us know when you have done that.

By install CHDK, you mean go to the http://mighty-hoernsche.de/ and download the one for my camera right?

Where can I find an intervalometer script?

ACID will download the right build for you automatically.

There are lots of intervalometer scripts here http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/UBASIC/Scripts

Here's a very simple one - it takes a picture every 5 seconds by default (but it's easy to change):
Code: [Select]
@title Simple Intervalometer
@param i Interval (Secs)
@default i 5
@param d Delay before start (Secs)
@default d 2

sleep 1000*d
while 1
   shoot
   sleep i*1000
wend
end

Thank you so much.

I chose this intervalometer: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/UBASIC/Scripts:_Ultra_Intervalometer

How do I set it to take photos at 5 secs though? Is there a way for me to edit the script? I am confused on the setting part.

Before you run a script (i.e. before you press the shutter button) you can alter the parameter values (using the left/right/up/down buttons). You just need to alter the values of the 'e' and 'f' parameters. For my simple script above you would just alter the 'd' parameter.

It's easy once you've done it once.

A simple intervalometer script is the Countdown Intervalometer. There is a short tutorial on the page that should get you started quickly. You can adjust the shutter speed using a CHDK shutter speed override.
