Version 4.1 now available at the usual download link.

Principal changes :
  • uses new features of latest CHDK stable (1.4). Needs that version to run
  • expanded HDR / bracketing functionality - now does Tv, Av, Sv bracketing in addition to Ev step
  • addition of high speed burst Tv bracketing mode
  • upgraded script parameter section
  • update UI with additional information included
  • user defined  seperate "blink" LED's for day and night mode with slower blink rate at night - allow immediate confirmation that the script is running when the LCD is off
  • various small performance tweaks

It's hard coded in this statement :
Code: [Select]
    draw_string( 24, line*16, string.sub(message.."                          ",0,34), fg, bg)The numbers 24 is the horizontal position and line*16 is the vertical position.

I change this line
Code: [Select]
    draw_string( 24, line*16, string.sub(message.."                          ",0,34), fg, bg)
after edit it look like this
Code: [Select]
    draw_string( 24, line*40, string.sub(message.."                          ",0,34), fg, bg)And as you can see there is problem bc info box dont go down but space got bigger bettwen stipes.

You almost got it right.  Try this :
Code: [Select]
    draw_string( 24, line*16+20, string.sub(message.."                          ",0,34), fg, bg)Change the value 20 to adjust the vertical position.

Ultimate 4.1 was running fine on an A470. Now when I run it on an A2200, I get a " :1: not enough memory error". Could this be a firmware issue?

This is almost certainly an issue specific to the A2200 port rather than the script, so I've replied in the a2200 porting thread: https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6254.msg126875#msg126875
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Hello! I've been using the script to take timelapses of some plants. I appreciate the development very much!

I came across something that I figured was report-worthy. I'm pretty sure that the issue is arising because I am using the development branch of CHDK (v1.5.0-4600). I was not having any issues with my previous setup using a 1 GB card and CHDK v1.4. (This is an issue outside of the Ultimate Intervalometer scope, but long story short, I couldn't get my 16 GB memory card to work with my older A570 using the dual partition method on v1.4....)

I have the camera taking pictures at 5 minute intervals, continuously.

Basically, the problem I witnessed is that the camera stops taking pictures after midnight. It will not take another picture until after the camera "restarts", at which point it will continue to take pictures normally for the remainder of the day until midnight, at which point the pictures stop again.

I checked out the log file and it appears that the camera thinks it is still taking pictures "after midnight", but the image name doesn't change, for example, all entries of images being taken are "img_7639.jpg". I can verify that the lens is retracted and there is no shutter actuation during this time. See example log file below -

IMO, this is unlikely. Not much as changed in 1.5 yet, and nothing in the time/date related code, but if you want to be sure you can put a 1.4 build on your card without changing any of the script or setting files. Just unzip a "small" build from http://mighty-hoernsche.de/ onto the card. You might want to back up the whole card first, just in case.

I'll take a look tonight.

Agreed.
