If image stabilization is not working, why is the exif showing otherwise?
Secondly, if the error is called ISDriveError, since the word 'drive' comes with Drive Mode, it wouldn't have any correlation, would it?
If image stabilization is not working, why is the exif showing otherwise?...I think it shows its current (official) setting. Since without SDM's intervention the camera would be nearly unusable, the Canon engineers chose not to care about errors here. I guess EXIF can't hold information like "Image Stabilization: Gone"
Secondly, if the error is called ISDriveError, since the word 'drive' comes with Drive Mode, it wouldn't have any correlation, would it?...I do not fully understand what you mean, but the both words (drive) probably don't refer to the exact same subject. ISDrive could mean all the needed electrical/mechanical parts/circuits.BTW, if I were in your place, I'd disable IS in the Canon settings (unless it's already disabled, and the EXIF values are completely incorrect).
@HamiltonBrandSince your post detailing your setup and camera got removed, you'll need to repeat that info.I can't promise that you'll get an easy solution like sh1981, nor that it's possible at all.What you should try first is getting the exact error message with the vers.req method. Read the posts / links here, if you're unsure how to do it. I assume, your camera shows an error message then shuts down when trying to start it in record mode. You should also check, how soon that error message appears after powering on in record mode.@sh1981 Hi! Thanks for trying to help. I appreciate it. What I'm trying to do is take a Canon SD800 and repurpose it into a Kodak Keystone K-8 8mm camera. Basically implanting the camera with the SD800 so it can shoot movies digitally. The sensor seems to be the perfect size and the LCD screen is big to fit barely. Putting it in the 8mm would be a different challenge so I don't mind experimenting with an easier, simple camera like a cheap used Vivitar fixed lenses like Microfunguy mentioned. It would only take pictures though and I'm not sure yet if there's a CHDK for that (canon only?). Anyways the blocker at the moment is that the camera displays this message "Lens error, please restart", then it flashes once and turns off automatically. This is because I took apart the lens array and accidently broke one plastic prong attached to the plastic lens ring. I was considering trying to use extra conductive epoxy to reconnect. It was fun to beable to take the SD800 apart by components (lens array, flash, LCD, case, and the battery/selections area) and put it back together to work great before that tho. Is it possible to: Tell it to shoot without lens / do not auto shut down in CHDK?Is it possible to configure the settings on the computer as it shuts down in 2 seconds before I can do anything?Let me see if I can get the video I made showing the message...
You can take movies with the fixed lens Vivitars.Apart from the bit you broke, is the rest of the lens assembly connected as usual via a FFC (flat, flexible connector) ?Do you have a photo of the bit you broke ?If it is just a piece of plastic why do you need conductive epoxy ?
See the 4 white dots? That's supposed to be connected to the other 4 white dots.
This photo shows a similar part that I took off on the other end of the lens array
I was looking into the chdk.wiki and couldn't find a Vivitar Build.
Is it possible to control the frame rate and such with a vivitar?
I can't seem to find a vivitar fixed lenses that also plays video.
Hope you don't mind me asking this question again: Is it possible to edit settings on the CHDK build on the simcard over the computer instead of trying to fix this camera and then telling it to not auto-shut down for the SD800? I realized that I'm unsure if I understood it correctly, that the SD800 can be told to not auto-shut down via a setting. I want to experiment and see if it will still take pictures and video even without the lens array. The focusing will occur in the 8mm camera.
Someone up the thread also mentioned that I can try taking it apart but leaving the lens array still connected to the camera, just put out of the way. I imagine this would take up space and i can work around it, but that will arise a new problem: is there a way to tell the camera via CHDK to ignore the focusing system and act as if the lens array does not exist?
I also have a canon SD200 which is slightly smaller. I got it from a friend who donated to this project because he lost his battery and I just need to get a new battery for this. I will try this again with this camera while looking for a vivitar to try that one out too. For the SD200, this time, I will see if i can get it to shoot with the lens array still connected to the camera but separated from the sensor.
