Okay - same link as posted above but I disabled only the actual added dual partition code.  All I need to know is if it boots - don't bother testing anything else.

It boots. CHDK 1.1.0 Rev 2143.

Okay - that narrows it down a lot.  I'll post again later tonight or tomorrow.

OK. Thanks. It's 6:35 AM Sunday here. I live in Northeast Thailand.

So are you getting up early or going to bed really late ?

Updated the link again .. found a small change in the A2000 code that was not made in the A1000.   Let's give that a try - this time if it boots you should check where it save pictures.

Brilliant. Same partition scheme as shown above. Except now we get:

Code: [Select]
bleach:100canon mnewman$ pwd
/Volumes/pics/DCIM/100canon
bleach:100canon mnewman$ ls -la
total 30304
drwxrwxrwx  1 mnewman  staff      4096 Sep 16  2012 .
drwxrwxrwx  1 mnewman  staff      4096 Sep 16  2012 ..
-rwxrwxrwx  1 mnewman  staff  15506160 Sep 16  2012 CRW_4348.DNG

Well done.

(I'm an old man, remember. I usually sleep at 9:00 PM and am up with the sun at 5:30 AM. Best time of the day here in the hot, humid tropics.)

That wasn't too bad then.   I'll package the fix up and post for inclusion in the autobuild.

If you think of it when you get back from your dive trip, post a couple of the best photos here ?   Fresh water diving in my part of the world is cold, dark and colourless.

Thanks again.

I'll do my utmost to remember to post photos. Keep in mind that "best" may not be much.

Next dive trip is to the Southern Gulf of Thailand in early October. I was there a few months back and really enjoyed it. The following link has some photos I took with this same camera. I'm hoping that shooting RAW will enable me to improve on the JPEGs I got then.

Thanks again.
I "fat fingered" one of the build options while putting this together.  Could cause camera crashes on startup once your SD card has a lot of pictures on it.   I fixed it - the download link has been updated -  suggest you update.

I'd also suggest you do some experimenting with RAW & DNG prior to the trip. You might find the amount of work needed to "process" the images not worth the effort.

One of the main reasons I installed CHDK was to see if RAW was worth the trouble. Still not sure.

I'm experimenting with the UFRA plugin for GIMP and Raw Photo Processor as a pre-processor for Graphic Converter. It will take some time developing a workflow.

One drawback I see immediately is that the camera cycle time is rather long when writing RAW files. Not exactly ideal for shooting moving creatures while being tugged by a current.

Anyway, thanks so much for taking the time to fix this. I enjoyed the process.
