Tried to follow waterwingz's format. Unfortunatelly I have no idea how to use tabs here so I used Courier.
SX30 is to come in a few days (I hope), A590 and SX260 when I can borrow them.
Camera: Canon PS A530Batteries: 2xAA Sanyo eneloop 2000mAh, 1900mAh minimal capacity (HR-3UTG: 1st generation Eneloop, about 4+ yrs old)Charger: Voltcraft IPC-1LTest Suite One....Test Suite Two....
thanks for the edit window. unfortunately its beyond my understanding.
updated script: i saw it, but1. i didnt want to mix results from different scripts (although i guess with the same settings they shold give similar results)
2. i think that what we do here is to give some information to those who plan to buy a camera and would use it for intervalometer shooting. the data provided already should be enough to help decide whether a camera model fits a persons needs battery-wise or not. So I'd like to stick with the 'old' script.
there are some discrepancies between your results and mine - i repeated those test with similar results. there will be more funny results with the sx30. interesting .
but i think its just polite to report my failure.
The display off option didn't work (it said something like can't blank)
Then, I tried the backlight off and it worked.
But I wanted to be sure if the behaviour of the camera is correct when I chose this.....Is that normal?
Can this harm the LCD screen and would it be best for me not to use this script during a 300 shots interval (8 seconds between shots)?
OK, I will integrate this option in my scripts from now on, to extend battery life a little.
