Default Lanc Sony Settings Universe Part 2

Well ..second episode... First of all thanks to
Thaar for his bravery and the dump of a 707....
Now I can really start to focus a bit my studies,
analysing the similarities
between firmware of Cybershots Cameras.......
If someone wants to send me as gifts some
sony cameras...no problems I will appreciate it
:-)

My data will be NOW based over DSCS70 and partially the DSC707.

I'm trying to convince my friend to let me
'operate' over his P12 ....but he's worried
about my strange activities....

Firmwares setting of 707 or S70 are splitted
into 16 pages... from 00 to 10hex..

Here the first draft result of my initial analysis..

First of all remember one thing:
Some of Sony Camera Setting are Persistent
even if the Battery is disconnected..some not..

Exposure level is RAM based...disconnect the battery
and You will loose the setting.......


Photo Size Format is EEPROM based...disconnect the battery
and You will NOT loose the setting..........
FLASH ERROR and ARE....EEPROM BASED
;-)))

NOTE ONUSE OF THE EMULATOR VIA LANC
CABLE AND A PC IN DOS MODE

The RM95EMUL SOFTWARE is a very simple emulator...
Just 6 buttons and a a WRITE FUNCTION

A- Move ONE PAGE DOWN
S- Move ONE PAGE UP

D-Move one Address Down
F-Move one Address Up

G-One bit Decrement of pointed address(In RAM)
H-One bit Increment of pointed address(IN RAM)

W-Write current location value into EEPROM CAMERA

HERE THE FIRST DRAFT PAGE DESCRIPTION
-------------------------------------
Page00
Master Registry Page.
Up to now the only relevant
address on this page is the address 01
If You set it to 1 all the other pages are unlocked.
If not You cannot set any registry.

Page01
This Page is LOCKED AN IS USED
FOR REPAIR ADJUSTING PURPOSES

Page02
THIS PAGE CONTAINS MOSTLY RAM UNPERSISTENT SETTING
LIKE AE Programs, Flash Levels,Exposure Levels etc etc.
Is probably not completely mirrored in any eeprom....take away the
battery and this page is almost completely re defaulted to standard
settings....

Page03
MOSTLY UN-USED

Page04
UNKNOW

Page05
TEST FUNCTIONS?,
on my S70 , address 1F
controls the generation of
color bar monitor,grey scale etc etc...

Page06
UNKNOW

Page07
HOT PAGE DO NOT TOUCH, IT CONTAINS
FACTORY CCD WHITE\BLACK ERROR compensations

Page08
EMPTY PAGE

Page09
UNKNOW

Page0A
EMPTY PAGE

Page0B
UNKNOW

Page0C
EMPTY PAGE
Page0D
THIS PAGE CONTAINS MOSTLY EEPROM PERSISTENT SETTING
LIKE PHOTO FORMAT, MENU DEFINITIONS PHOTO NUMBERS etc etc.
I was\will publish some settings for this fundamental page...

Basically you can start to play with this page, with your camera
switched on. If Youdo not press 'W' the change of an address content
disappear when you move to a previous or next page\address.
Some of this page settings are xor checksum controlled...
For instance addresses 20 21 22 23 24 selects the photo size....

Page0E
UNKNOW

Page0F
THIS PAGE Contains Lens\Shiutter Mechanism & Withe balancing
settings and is camera dependent,every camera has different values


A lot of work still to do....
