Intervalometer extensions Edit
Hi, I suggest modifying the intervalometer feature: - the total number of shots should be unlimited (just keeps taking pics until it fills up the card...) Currently this is arbitrarily set at 100. - the time between shots should be in SECONDS not minutes (with a minimum of 10 seconds, say) I'm no expert but it seems to me that these two features should be do-able simply by modifying certain constant values in the firmware. Thanks for reading. email@example.com
- No problem: Keo wrote a nice Ultra Intervalometer script which does what you want. I also like to use it. --Harvester 12:51, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
- Be sure to get the latest version, I had to rewrite some routines to compensate for a problem when choosing 1 frame, a delay to 1st shot, and "endless" turned on (it was taking 2 shots instead of 1 and screwing up the total cycle-time count).The "Delay 1st Shot" time-setting being used as your time between single but endless shots. If you are using an S-Series camera you might be more interested in the OMNI Intervalometer script. It has the same features but also includes options to use a combo of video and/or still-frame images in your intervalometer sequences. Keoeeit 00:17, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Bit late getting back I know, but... thanks to all, I've downloaded CHDK and I am now playing with it and timelapsing away like a very happy thing. Perhaps this is not the place to ask, but for some reason my PC card reader refuses to read my 2GB card yet it reads all my other, smaller cards OK. The S3 IS reads & writes & formats all my cards just fine. Erm, where would I go for help on this? Thanks, firstname.lastname@example.org.
