Multipurpose Bracketing Edit
- Written for/on: Powershot A710 IS
- Also works on: Powershot A540
I use this script for taking shots of different exposures for HDR photography. This script can also take shots with varying aperture value or shutter speed.
Documentation/Help (save as a small "m-p-bracketing.txt" file to your /SCRIPTS/ folder)
Before running the script, the setting(exposure, aperture, etc.) that is to be varied must be active(by pressing thebutton if necessary). This script takes a number of shots starting at the current value and increase that value for the next shoot. For example, to take 3 pictures with exposures -1, 0, and +1, set the step size to 3 and number of shots to 3. For the A710, set the script shoot delay to at least 11, other cameras should be different. Press button and set the exposure to -1. Then go to alt mode and run the script.

@title Multipurpose Bracketing @param a Step size @default a 1 @param b Number of shots @default b 3 if a<1 then let a=1 if b<1 then let b=3 rem click "erase" (Originally here, but removed because I can't see why it's necessary) rem click "erase" (same case. What purpose do these statements serve?) rem update 08/05/06 I think they should be there in order to prepare for the click right/left commands further down. print "Shoot", 1, "of", b shoot for s=2 to b for n=1 to a click "right" next n print "Shoot", s, "of", b shoot next s let b=b-1 for s=1 to a*b click "left" next s end
