Shutter Bracketing Edit

Written for/on: Canon A640
Also works on: Other Canon AXXX (Not tested), A620 (tested - works fine)

Shutter Bracketing by Johan Van Barel (http://www.vanbarel.com)

The purpose is to create a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image from a set of images taken at different exposures.

The script takes a number of images around the selected shutter speed. So if you take 3 pictures, with shutter speed set to 1/250" and Step Size=3 (=1EV), it will take the first picture at 1/500", the second at 1/250" and the third at 1/125". You can later stitch the images together with a program like Photomatix (http://www.hdrsoft.com/index.html)

ps. There seems to be a minor bug in the set_tv command. After the script has finished, the display does not show the actual shutter speed value. You can check this by half-pressing the shoot button. This will update the display to the correct internal shutter speed value.

Documentation/Help (save as a small ShutterBracket.txt" file to your /CHDK/SCRIPTS/ folder)


Select M mode on your Canon A640 and manually select your desired center shutter speed.

Parameters:

  • Number of Pics (Default=3)
  • Shutter Step Size (1/3 EV) (Default=3)
  • Initial Delay (Sec) (Default=1)

Script Code (save as "ShutterBracket.bas" to your /CHDK/SCRIPTS/ folder)

rem Johan Van Barel 30-03-2008
rem Shutter-Bracketing for Canon A640

@title Shutter Bracket (Select M Mode)
@param a Number of Pics
@default a 3
@param b Shutter Step Size (1/3 EV)
@default b 3
@param c Initial Delay (Sec)
@default c 1

if a<2 then let a=2
if b<1 then let b=1
if c<0 then let c=0

print "Pics:"; a, "Step:"; b

sleep c*1000

set_tv_rel (a-1)*b/2

for s=1 to a
    get_user_tv_id t

    set_tv_rel -b

end
