Nathan @ Linux.com has a great how-to on making a cheap Cannon camera better with a firmware mod, he writes –
If you have a point-and-click digital camera made by Canon, you may be able to turn on all sorts of features usually reserved for more expensive SLRs. That includes live histograms, depth-of-field calculation, under and overexposure highlighting, and — best of all — shooting your pictures in RAW. The secret is CHDK, an enhanced, free software replacement firmware.

I’m thrilled by this, but my SD500 is not supported. It would be great for all of us to be supported. How can we get support for all? I’d jump right in, but don’t know how to do this kind of stuff.
Also, the best part isn’t RAW, it’s the uBasic scripting language that lets you code the camera to work all of its features, and set up delays through Basic code! I’ve been wishing for that since I got my first Elph camera in 2002.
