A630 and A640
// Mode  8221 in firmware but not in current modemap

This takes us to C mode on both cameras. Selecting the custom preset mode by script works just fine.

a590:
// Mode 32791 in firmware but not in current modemap

This is underwater mode (the icon with the Fish)
Not accessible on mode dial. Funct button press works fine, no crashes.

ixus125_elph110hs:
// Mode 33326 in firmware but not in current modemap

Icon for this mode is attached. I don't know its name.
It activates the timer for 10 or 15 beeping seconds and then takes three pictures in sequence.

The not officially supported modes seem to cause trouble sometimes...
I'd suggest that the "unofficial" modes are likely a cut&paste thing from the code of other cameras for speed of development by the Canon developers - never intended to be discovered ?

ixus130_sd1400:
// Mode 33320 in firmware but not in current modemap
// Mode 33322 in firmware but not in current modemap

Both yield the same icon as shown for ixus125_elph110hs.
They might be different settings I don't know.

Just one photo was taken here but as on I125 the DISP button is supposed to be used to switch the number.
That goes into and out of ALT mode though. So I had to fiddle a bit to get into the screen. I found that one can set 1 to 10 photos among other params (Face self timer, wink self timer, smile detection). How does one use the DISP button normally when it also has the ALT mode mapped to it?

Either that or something that didn't work out as planned and thus never made it into being accessible for users. It's not as if Canon would issue FW updates for compacts to add features... What's broken stays broken :) Unless it's really bad and can't be hidden.

Anyway, I've had enough of this for the day. I'll complete the remaining 5 cams another day.

ixus85_sd770:

// Mode 32774 in firmware but not in current modemap => M with 1'' (Long Shutter?)
// Mode 32779 in firmware but not in current modemap => Night Snapshot
// Mode 32781 in firmware but not in current modemap => Portrait
// Mode 16407 in firmware but not in current modemap => Underwater

// Current modemap entry not found in firmware - MODE_PORTRAIT            16397
// Current modemap entry not found in firmware - MODE_NIGHT_SNAPSHOT      16395
The camera doesn't crash but both get us to Auto, that is they are wrong and do nothing.

ixus95_sd1200:
// Mode  2598 in firmware but not in current modemap

This is what one gets for the prop when using the camera mode switch to enable video mode.

sx100:
// Mode  2598 in firmware but not in current modemap
This takes us to the video ICON. Video cannot be shot in this mode though. On Shutter press the focus is moved to extremely out of focus and then the camera shut off showing E02.

// Current modemap entry not found in firmware - MODE_INDOOR              32785
32785 takes us to the AUTO icon and has no effect
MODE_INDOOR is 16401

Let me know if SX100 needs a more thorough mode map check.
(e.g. if 16401 is wrongly assigned to something else)
