Andrew, I admire your efforts. Yes chdk is pretty cool, but your solution is much better. Whats the cost, for a hacker to get one of these? We teamed with Analog Devices for a bit, with their blackfin DSP to speed up image processing for demo cameras (I used to work for Aptina, AKA Micron, in R&D test of new sensors..) Randy

This kit is FREE open source for the Cannon Powershot, with many of the features mentioned in the article, including HDR. Download it onto a cf flash, and it replaces the Cannon OS. Many amazing images 1/50,000 milkdrop captures, night scenes etc can be found at http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK

All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
