Canon EOS - M

I just purchased the Canon EOS -M (Digic 5 mirrorless DSLR point & shoot hybrid. 18MP)
For $350.
The AF feature has to be fixed with a firmware update from Canon to speed things up, but seeing how affordable this camera is... This might make a great camera for cracking into.

It gets here this week... so I'll find out what's locked up on it.

I couldn't find any other posts about it...

CHDK is unlikely to ever support the EOS-M.
You need MagicLantern:

CHDK ports:
  sx30is (1.00c, 1.00h, 1.00l, 1.00n & 1.00p)
  g12 (1.00c, 1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  sx130is (1.01d & 1.01f)
  ixus310hs (1.00a & 1.01a)
  sx40hs (1.00d, 1.00g & 1.00i)
  g1x (1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)

It's really too bad - CHDK has some nice features (like being able to focus to infinity and lock) that MagicLantern doesn't seem to care about, being more a project for video.
A720 1.00c | D10 1.00b |SX220 1.01a | SX230 ? | SX30 1.00p CHDK ver. 1.1.0-r1727

The Canon DSLR codebase is fundamentally different from the P&S codebase. It wouldn't make sense to port CHDK. If you wanted CHDK-like features, you'd be far better of contributing those features to ML, or creating your own ML fork if for some reason it was impossible to get your changes accepted.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
