Please advise me on which camera to buy.

Hi All,

I've been struggling to get the restart script/s in CHDKworking on my Powershot 300 HS working with no success so far, although I have received advice from the denizens of this board. No luck so far.

I want to buy an additional small Canon - this time one which definitely works with the scripts which have been posted on the CONTINUOUS VIDEO SCRIPTS page. I have also been through the massive list of Canon cameras which are CHDK friendly with respect to the restarting after the 10 minute limit and tried to find one which is available.

Could anyone please advise me on a Canon model which is actually available for sale, not discontinued, that is known to work ok doing the restart thing?

Many thanks,

Harry.

I assume you are talking about this script : http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Continuous_Video_Scripts  but as you have apparently only posted twice,  I can't track the "advice" you have received on this board.

Those scripts are pretty simple - if the camera will run CHDK,  it will run those scripts.

There is also a shorted list of cameras that simply bypass the limit in the core CHDK code.

Stick with the models listed on the right hand side of the main page of the CHDK wiki : http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK   If they are listed there,  they will run the script.

Unfortunately,  CHDK development usually lags the Canon release cycle.  And many recent Canon releases will not work with the current CHDK code at all so it will be some time before those are posted.
