One question: Is there a way to delay the start or first shot of the script (so I could set up the camera out the night before but set it to wait ~6 hours (just before sunrise) before it starts shooting). I've tried that with other scripts, but without success.
What did you try ?Presumably a big sleep command at the start of the script would work. Or if you want to get fancy, sit in a loop watching the current exposure level and start when it gets light enough.
Do you have an external power supply ? That's a long time for the camera to be turned on draining batteries no matter what you do.
So, I figured out how to add a start-up delay (WOOHOO!). If anyone else is interested, I'm attaching my modified script. It has two new parameters at the beginning for delay (hours) and delay (minutes). And I got the delay to countdown on the screen (in minutes). So far I've only tested it a few times on my SD870, but it seems to work.
Although there's no such option you can always do one of following:- set the number of shoots to really big value (I'm pretty sure that 10^6 is more than enough)- modify the source code:)Regards!
I have changed the value 1000 to 9999 in the script text (...)
(...) but each time loading it on the camera, it displays the value last set by me on the camera.This happens despite that I have set "save params" to off.
