Hello all. New to the forum but been happily using CHDK for a couple of years now! I'm a big fan of the UltraIntervalometer script, and I've been using it for both timelapse shooting and to automatically shoot images from an ultra-light kite photography rig.
Unfortunately, both of my Cannons (SD450 and SD600) are now exhibiting flaky behavior of the mode switch when in still-shot mode. Playback mode is selected reliably, but still mode tends to "drop" down into video mode. If I don't catch it, I'll end up shooting a series of timelapse "movies" instead of individual shots, and this really messes up my shot-to-memory card calculations, etc.
With a little searching I get the idea there's a way to set the Capture mode somehow, but not being script-literate I'm not sure how to go about augmenting an existing script. What I'd really like to do is just to modify a script like Ultra Intervalometer to just override the capture mode to force still mode right off the bat. Could I just add the right command to the top of that script?
Please accept my sincere thanks to everyone in this community who made such a cool project happen.
