Canon Powershot A1100IS Ultra Intervalometer Script
« on: 17 / January / 2012, 18:13:30 »

Hi-
I have a Canon Powershot A1100IS and I'm trying to use the ultra intervalometer script.  Although the website where I downloaded the script from said it did not support my camera model, users on other forums said that they are running this same script on the A1100IS.

Currently the script isn't running on the A1100IS.  Is there a way to change the script so that it works on this model or would I have to write an entirely new script to perform the same function?  If there are ultra intervalometer scripts that work on the A1100IS, please let me know ASAP.


Thanks   :D

Please provide a link to where it says this script will not work on your camera ?

Currently the script isn't running on the A1100IS.
Its a pretty "plain vanilla" script - nothing camera specific in the code you posted.  When you say it isn't running, tell us specifically what did you do to load and run the script (including the complete path to where you put it on your SD card). What does it for a title at the bottom of the Scripts menu ? And what parameters are displayed below that title ?  What happens when you press the shutter button in <ALT> mode ?

I got the script from the CHDK website and it had a list of supported camera models.  The A1100IS was not listed.
http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/UBASIC/Scripts:_Ultra_Intervalometer

To load the script on the camera, I pressed the <ALT> button and then pressed <FUNC SET>.  I looked through all the files until I found the the ultra intervalometer script and then pressed <FUNC SET>.  I loaded the same script onto another model, A540, the same way and it worked fine, so it doesn't seem that the way I loaded the script was a problem.

My script was saved as a text file in the scripts folder on the SD card after it was hacked.

The title at the bottom of the script menu says Ultra Intervalometer\.  The parameters that are displayed below the title are DELAY 1st SHOT(MINS), DELAY 1st SHOT (SECS), NUMBER OF SHOTS, INTERVAL (MINUTES), INTERVAL (SECONDS), INTERVAL (10th SECONDS), ENDLESS? NO=0 YES=1.

Thanks  :D

The camera is reading the script, but it is not executing.
