Bracket in continous mode (enhancement...)
« on: 03 / April / 2008, 00:59:11 »
I caught myself a lot either bracketing when in continuous shots for A610 when I don't want to. Yes there is a reset option upon power up. However it can be annoying to have to set the bracket value again then go to continuous mode (Custom drive) - 2 actions instead of one. I use (Continuous drive) only to get action pictures and (Custom drive) for my bracketing needs.

To make it short:
- Allow for bracketing in [Custom drive] mode
- Allow for disengaging bracketing [Continuous drive] mode

This can be done with the following option flags settings:
 1. Bracketing inactive
 2. Bracket in Custom drive only
 3. Bracket in Continuous drive only
 4. Both

The code modification seems to work on my A610. Not sure how to insert it in the main development.

PhyrePhoX has been working on this issue (in some recent posts ... somewhere). He's already added some menu functions for this, and is trying to figure out a way to assign shortcut buttons for it now.

He, or you both, might welcome each other's input on this issue.

Thanks Barney-
From PhyreFoX post, I believe that we are working on complementary paths.
PhyreFox is working more on display and fast disabling of overrides. Mine is more to allow for the bracketing to be present more permanently but to provide the end user with the flexibility of having different flavors of continuous drive modes with or without bracketing.

Sorry this is just my bad Fuji habit where I just set the bracketing value somewhere deep in the menu tree. Then only need to select the drive mode to activate the feature.

At some point I even had the crazy idea to attach scripts to 'Custom menu' to do that. Unfortunately, scripting does not allow to change CHDK configuration yet (e.g. set the Tv bracketing value of the CHDK menu tree then go to Canon menu tree to set the drive mode).
