Good catch, but why DNG when you can shoot native Canon RAW with this camera?
Canon RAW might include some lens corrections and a little lossless compression and that is good.  But DNG is more of an "open" format and so may work with more software packages.

There is a bug in CHDK port for the S100 which causes a crash when shooting:

if these conditions are ALL true:
- shooting with external remote
- remote options set to: TwoPush AND Normal AND Synchro on
- camera detects a face (face detection in Canon menu disabled)

one can test it by shooting  the own face in front of a mirror (so camera detects a face)

Can this be fixed e.g by setting in the code the face detect counter to zero?

thanks
Werner

Some cameras have a ResetFaceDetect() function, maybe that will work ?

Strange problem .....

A romlog could shed more light on this. It wouldn't surprise me if other cameras were affected too.

I have never compiled CHDK.

If you follow exactly the same sequence but have sync off does it crash ?

What about if you follow exactly the same sequence but use OnePush rather than TwoPush?

My suspicion is that the wait for the remote release code sitting in a tight loop causes problem for the face detection code.  Strange that it should be active when you have disabled it in the Canon menu though.

Update : SDM uses exactly the same code for wait for the remote release.  Does it exhibit the same crash?

Hmmm .... a quick Forum search that I have just done shows that this was known two years ago :-

So, during the half-press, the number of faces detected variable (in the structure) must get updated.

As Werner suggests, continually forcing to zero while switch is pressed should disable it.
