Hi everyone. During some down time as I wait for my spare arducopter parts to arrive, I'm planning to put in some time with the CHDK. I've managed to download it to my camera and see that it is installed correctly. My goal is to write a script that will give shutter speed control, as well as perform continuous shooting. Do you all have any experience with this?
Stephen and I found a handy little script that acts like an Intervalometer and just initiates the Continuous Shooting Mode for an SD4000. I think it is this one: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/UBASIC/Scripts:_A_fast_%22intervalometer%22
I've never gone about programming the shooting settings since we calibrate to the grey card, but I think it could be useful. I've been tossing around the idea in my head of using CHDK to take 'bracketed' images. In practice this means that each picture also has a slightly over-exposed and under-exposed picture to go with it. I think people use this for high dynamic range photography, but I can see how it would be useful for improving observation down into the canopy.
Have you ever used a code repository? Do you think we can put the CHDK on our code.ecosynth.org Bitbucket project page?
