I currently use an A2300, tried to load CHDK, maybe an issue with using an 8G SD card,
but in any case the A2300 won't work due to the bug in CHDK relative to not being able to auto focus when zooming.
1. Would need to be compatible with CHDK and as light as possible. An older Canon would be fine as I do not use high resolution photos. That said it seems the newer camera's are the lightest (smallest) but would need to have CHDK.
3. I noticed many camera's have a "Print" button but my A2300 does not, looks like convention for entering CHDK on a newer camera is hitting the "Play" button, is that correct?
4. Would need to have an 11-pin USB port, I think, in order to breakout the video from the camera.
I did use STICK and it appeared the SD card loaded properly. I could see all the new files on the card. I dropped a picture from my camera onto STICK, it properly identified, loaded the card with files, etc. I locked the card, loaded it into my camera and hit play, not ON, and nothing happened, camera just locked up. I had to reset the battery to get camera function back.
As I said it was an 8G card formatted FAT32 but it appears the A2300 is a newer camera and STICK did not have a problem with it formatted at FAT32 for this model camera.
The issue of the zoom not auto focusing as a known bug is on this site for the A2300 implementation of CHDK.
I realize all the supported cameras are listed on this site, I was hoping someone could be a little more specific based on my criteria and their knowledge of the Canon product lines. I had seen where others on the forum had received specific recommendations.
Forgive me for my newbie questions.
Relative to STICK and the A2300 - I recently returned the camera to Canon under a warranty repair as the lens was no always retracting properly and they ended up "replacing" it under warranty, like two months ago, so it probably has the latest, maybe newer firmware. I was assuming STICK would find this out and let me know if there were any issues?
I read on the forum that you should not hit the On button 1st, but instead the Play button and I thought maybe that was it.
Relating to remote shooting, you might check this wiki article: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Chdkptp_in_headless_linux_Dockstar_-_remote_controlI've used an A590 (4x zoom), and SX120IS (10x) and an SX40HS (35x, but heavy).How are you streaming from your quadcopter?

STICK gets the firmware version for the camera from the image you "drop" onto it (or select via menu). If you dropped an image from your older camera with a different firmware version, it would quite happily load the firmware version for the older camera onto the card. And then you would see exactly what you did - the camera crashes on startup.So retry the process with an image from your new camera and it should all work properly.Quote from: Accupro on 09 / March / 2014, 13:37:27 I read on the forum that you should not hit the On button 1st, but instead the Play button and I thought maybe that was it. You only have to use the play button to start the camera when you are trying to use the "Firmware Update" method of booting.
