Powershot G16

Hi all,

first of all, thank you guys for the wonderful job. I've been reading a lot on CHDK and now I can't wait to use it on my new G16. Unfortunately , searching in the forum, I couldn't find any mention to the last Powershot G cameras.

I was almost tempted to try the G15 version on the G16, but, since it's new and expensive, I think I'll wait until there will be a proper version, instead.

So my question is: any idea on IF and WHEN? Any way I can help with some test, maybe?

Ok, thank you,
ciao,
F

chdk for g15 won't work, you may help by posting a firmware dump of your g16 for starters

link> CHDK FAQ : My camera isn't ported yet

After you've read that, be aware that the G16 apparently has Canon's newer firmware - which has yet to be hacked to support CHDK.  A ROM dump would help get that started : http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Scripts/Dumper

It is virtually certain that all Digic 6 cameras use the thumb2 instruction set, like the sx280 http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=9992.0 and unlike all currently supported cameras.

This means that chdk support will probably not be available until there is a skilled developer who has a digic 6 camera and a substantial amount of time to dedicate to the the project.

In any case, a G16 dump would be useful to confirm this.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Sorry for the late answer.
Sure I will post the dump as soon as I've time to understand the 'how to' instructions.
Probably during the next weekend.

After a quick glance it's not too clear to me, especially the part about creating and appending the script for the dump to the extend.m file... append means leave what's in and add the following. But I couldn't understand what's in the extend.m... any tip, please?

Cheers,
Federico

The extend.m file should contain the Canon Basic script (in your case, it will be the 'universal dumper'), and nothing else. "Append" is a bit misleading in that context.
