Hi, today i went into a field test, and i went with a canonSX260 hacked with the CHDK script from conservations drones, and i encounter a couple o problems. First of all, my setup regarding the script parameter where the following:
-Interval (sec)= 2s
-Zoom step =30
That being said, the problems that i had where:
1.- When i hit the trigger button to start the script, the camera zoom in and then freeze and turn off. Then if i, before running the script, put some zoom on the camera that is somehow near the desireble zoom position of the script, the script start running (the intervalometer start taken shoots) but not as expected (see next point).
2.- When i manage to start the script, there is a dialogue box that gives you information about the status of the script (shoots taken, shoots left, time active and time remaining). And when, in that dialogue box, the active time reaches zero, the camera stay on, and it should be turned off by the script, so i dont know why the camera script soes this. Furthermore at this moment, when the active time reaches zero, the photos taken are not what they should be, i mean there are some photos still untaken.
i fortgot to say that the time active start to go on negative, i mean that it count like this: 2...,1...,0...,-1...,-2...
So i would really apretiate your help because this is a real puzzle for me, coz i dont know about programming...
I´ll upload the script that i loaded into the camera
