Ok, finally, I got the port source all cleaned up and everything is correct as far as the props and params of my cam as i got all info from osd debug.

Here is the link to my source which of coarse still use chdk-shell with. : http://www.mediafire.com/file/coiarwtyr2hy3od/trunk1613.zip

And here are the latest and last builds from me.

My wife does not want me working on this anymore 8/

In the new builds I created a new color pallette in gui_draw so all colors are great in shooting mode.

Of coarse playmode menu colors are not going to be right using just a gui_draw pallette since its a newer cam and it seems it becoming harder and harder to make the colors work good for both modes.

My priority was shoot mode so I made it perfect for that mode.

You will need to copy both the diskboot.bin and chk folder to the card and overwrite everything especial the CFG file for colors to take effect.

Thanks everyone, its been fun, but I am happy with the port now and cant spend anymore time on it, so enjoy!!

sorry for my bad english but i'm italian :-P

I tried CHDK for a3300 IS (fw. 100d) and it's working properly but i've only 3 questions:

1) why the build used for this porting is the 1509 and not the latest released version of CHDK?
2) i've try to change the Av "Override aperture" but my camera doesn't take pictures (on P mode) with the value i've insert. why?
3) this question isn't for report a bug but .... if i take a dng, the picture have the lens barril distortion. what are the correct values can i insert in photoshop (lens correction) to resolve it? (i'm unhappy for my corrections results :-P ) or is there a profile for A3300 IS for photoshop's lens correction?

Hi, I used the 1509 trunk cause that is the trunk that was out when I started it, had no reason to put it into the latest trunk.

Our camera has no real control over aperture, only if we zoom in and out our aperture changes, the chdk values will change the exposure darker and brighter though, just not real aperture values.

And the barrel distortion is totally normal, I posted the reason for this a few posts ago.

ok, it is also obvious.... I had not thought :-P

now i understand... thanks

I appreciate all the work you have done.. i recently got this camera and was wondering if there anyway to extend the time for the time lapse videos? i think its limit is 10 minutes or 4gb however at 20x the files are 50mb or less. would love to be able to do 1hr or more time lapse videos..

thanks in advance..

It would be great if someone could either take my source off the SVN or update it with my new source I posted because that was my old version and very BETA while I was still testing, and Reyalp had put many unfair lines in the notes.txt, the only thing correct in his notes as of now is that I have limited programming experience.

My version is working fine and my source is all cleaned up with my own notes and comments as well.

If not, I hope people for this camera come here for the updated source for this camera.

I even updated it for the latest trunk1613 : http://www.mediafire.com/file/coiarwtyr2hy3od/trunk1613.zip

Thankyou.

@mk11174 :  as they said in the Spider-Man movies "with great power comes great responsibilities".  And as such,  it seems that you are now the maintainer of the A3300 port of CHDK.   Congratulations.

The next thing you need to figure out is TortoiseSVN so that you can submit changes that the SVN maintainers can use without them needing to struggle to find what you changed in a huge zip file of everything in the trunk.

What you should do is  download and install TortoiseSVN to your machine. Then create a local repository of the CHDK svn site,  download the most recent update of the stable branch 1.0, patch the A3300 files with your changes & fixes and then create a patch file.    What I usually like to do at that point is revert my svn local copy and apply the patch file I created to make sure all the changes I made are in the patch file.

Once that is done, submit that patch file here :  http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=650.0.

Its actually a lot easier to do than almost everything you have done so far. There is a manual in many languages available at the site.

Good luck !

Ok, sounds good, I did not know we could do it that way, I just learned from what it said on the adding new port page which was post it in a forum.

But that is good then, I just wish the old source was off the SVN cause like Reyalp did mention, it had issues cause I am new and did not know about the cleanup process.

Now that I have a much better source I really hate the idea that one is out there, I would rather have it off completely, my fault for even trying to put it out in such an early stage.

At least now I feel its worth it to be on there and would like to see the better source up, but if I can do what you said, doesn't sound to bad, thanks.

Then create a local repository of the CHDK svn site,
Check out a working copy. Yes, I am a pedant, but terminology matters in this case, a repository in SVN is something very different ;)

I'd welcome updated patch.  I understand you put a lot of work into this. It was not my intention flame you personally, but I've had to support enough broken, half baked ports that I have a strong reaction to them.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Hey, I just want to be sure I patch for the right trunk.

I notice the trunk that updates with chdk shell is somewhat differ then the branches/release-1 0.

I see the port needs a few changes to make the port work depending if you use the trunk that chdk updates auto or the release-1 0 from the branches directory.

Just to be clear, I want my port set up for the branches/release-1 0 version of revision 1614 right, not the trunk/ right?

I made 2 versions of my port to work for both because I was not sure which was the more important one to be setup for.
