    So far the following things remain to be done:-
    • Video support (my latest code crashes when changing mode/shooting video)
    • Games (problem with play mode on modemap I guess)
    • SDHC support (I've done this but can't test it yet)
    • Raw - I've no idea, DNG seems to work for me
    Histogram seems to work for me I think, although I've never used CHDK before so I could be wrong ??? I'm rather frustrated and busy at the moment, so I'll leave things there for now. If anyone else wants to take over let me know and I'll upload my latest code.

    Histogram is working.
    I just can't open raw files.

    RAW files

    Maybe i help someone in trouble about raw too.  :)

    I did the following:

    Ok, then follow me...
    - power your cam on, half-press the shutter to go to record mode
    - press PRINT, then press FUNC/SET
    - select "Load script from file", go 2 steps down to the TEST/ folder, press FUNC/SET
    - select "BADPIXEL.LUA", press FUNC/SET
    - start the script with the SHUTTER !
    - wait until you see "press SET to save....."
    - press FUNC/SET to store the badpixel.bin automatically in the right place

    - press PRINT to leave the <Alt> mode, press PRINT again to enter <Alt> mode
    - press MENU, go to the "RAW parameters", enter it with FUNC/SET
    - enable the settings "Save RAW" , "DNG format" and "DNG file extension"
    - press PRINT to leave the <Alt> mode again

    Now RAW saving in DNG format is enabled, transfer the DNG files with a card reader...

    Works for me very well.

    :)

    I just want to give props to Mr. Spoon, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am just starting out with CHDK and the a470 was my first Canon camera so I've been regularly checking to see if anyone successfully ported my camera. Awesome work, I just tested intravolometer.....AWESOME. I cant wait to play with RAW images. To Mr. Spoon and all the developers working very hard on these cameras, you deserve to be paid or rewarded somehow. Just know your efforts are appreciated. It's a holiday weekend so enjoy, grab a cold one. I've waited this long for anything relevant to my camera. I can wait as long as it takes. It's free so I can't complain or try to rush anyone. These guys have lives too.

    Thanks for the nice comments and support guys :)

    I keep saying I'm going to leave this but it's so hard to resist 'one more try' ::)

    I've got the v1.01b doing video with optical zoom and (in theory) SDHC support, I've updated the links so please test! I'll add these features to v1.02c soon.

    TODO:
    • Fix modemap for games support
    • Fix that silly menu bug
    • Add superduper long exposure support
    • Check over camera constants which I just copied! (stuff like colour matrix etc)
    • Make a proper distribution with code

    Fixed the RAW can already see the solution here http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Badpixel_removal

    badpixel.luaIn download the complete packages badpixel.lua there's the script (located in the folder \ CHDK \ SCRIPTS \ TEST) badpixel.bin to generate the file on the fly in the camera.

    Just run the script: it automatically takes 2 pictures, badpixel the calculated data and then it creates the file badpixel.bin. This procedure takes ~ 20-30 s of time, at the end of the process you can save the file with the SET button.

    The current version of the script can also be downloaded directly from the SVN server: badpixel.lua

    News about this new CHDK
    I decided to list the main features working and not working in order to help the developer and the new people in forum

    I've tested all the features.
    - Bracketing is working (in continuous mode);
    - Optical zoom on video mode only works for zoom in;
    - exposition works fine;
    - Lens aperture works fine;
    - games don't work (but i'ts secondary, we don't need that anyway);
    - OSD don't work in RECORD mode, only apears in play mode (even changing the options);
    - Histogram workd fine, but we CAN'T see it because OSD only works in play mode;
    - Menu issues when down options;
    - Manual focus when use the zoom button don't work yet.

    Basicaly is not that bad, it's working pretty well so far, i downgraded to the previous version because of the OSD in rec mode.

    Thank you MrSpoon for developing this CHDK.
    I'll always test the new updates in order to help you.   :)
