BTW, it seems to me that the script works better on alpha6 than alpha7. I don't know why, but smth should be wrong with alpha7
There is total difference between "shoot" and "shoot_full" commands. I think, that the second is for our and, maybe, all the DIGIC IV and higher cameras, but the first is for older ones.
alpha7 enabled the code that allowed zoom in video mode. Seems really unlikely that it would have any affect at all on how well your script works.
If you look at the CHDK code, you will see that is not true. The "shoot" command just issues a press(shoot_half) followed by a press(shoot_full) and then a release(shoot_full) and release(shoot_half).
I've tried many intervalometer scripts before and all they stopped after 1 or 2 shoots and all of them had "shoot" command. That's why I think that there is a difference between these commands.
Clearly they work differently based on your testing. Did you find this to be true on any other cameras than the ixus1115 ?
No, I only have 100 hs.
When that script starts, focus is only set once at the start. According to the code, it should not attempt to focus again while the script is running.
But are you saying that if you stop the script and restart it, it does not focus the second time ?
is there a thread that discusses the workings of CHDK and getting it ported to a camera? If so please let me know.
