I started using Chdk just a month ago..
There is one thing i dont understand.
I have a Sx500 is camera, the original aperture values are 3.4 and 8.0
I was only using chdk for shooting in raw and some other features, but i was affraid of using the overrides, because i fear they may damage my camera.
But curiosity won, and i tryed using the Av override,
the available value options i get in the chdk menu are from 3.4 to 16.0, so, i dont get a wider aperture, but yes a smaller one. Never the less, if a shoot in AV 16 override, the canon display shows f/11, not f/16.
The thing i dont get is the next one:
I was not expecting the canon display to show the override aperture, (i guess it happens with Tv too, doesnt it? i mean, its shown on the original camera display?), i thought the canon display would remain in 8.0, and that only the CHDK osd would show me f/16.
it is even shown on the playback mode when i double click display, and i guess it will be that way on the PC softwares and exiff files..
If the canon display shows the f/11, i should consider that the camera is really doing an f/11 aperture, and not an f/8.
The thing is, if the camera can do an f/11 aperture, to the point that it shows it on the original display, why didnt canon released it that way? can it be because it damages the camera, not meant to do that, or because the other features are not design for that aperture either?
i havent taken many photos with f/11 yet, do you think the depth of field difference can be apreciated?
the subject distance override activates when you activate av override for that purpose? doesnt it?
and, how does that work? how can chdk make the camera focus farther?
well, sorry for the long posts, and sorry for my english, i hope someone can take away this doubts..
