I'd like to set my camera (a630, CHDK allbest build) to monitor my bird table,
for around 8 hours (while I'm at work)
I was thinking, on my 1Gb sd card of taking 1 photo per minute,
setting the resolution/compression low enough than 1Gb will
hold the 480 pictures generated.
To reduce battery consumption, I can focus lock, although
automatic exposure is probably desirable.
I don't have a "mains" power supply for my camera, but I do
have 2 sets of NiMh batteries.
Question; since the 2.5" display is a major consumer
of power. can I run a script with the display off?
Wll I then get my 8 hour runtime?
follow up question; having run in this way, can
I turn the display off/on without stopping the script?
