To add more mud to the fire  :blink:, here's a540 trunk r3696

Looks pretty much like ixus870_sd880, but the rec and play palettes are slightly different.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Is this different than what you had earlier?  Or just not what you were hoping to see?

My A560 is like that too -  similiar but different.

Other than the menu cursor color (which should be fixed), is there anything that has changed with any of the UI colors?

Nothing significant that I noticed. It looks like the default edge overlay color may have changed, but I don't think that matters.

It seems, that there are 2 color "types":
1. g15, n, n_facebook, s110, sx160is, sx170is, sx50hs, sx510hs
color definitions as 0x3FXXXXXX
2. other cameras (where palette is used):
0x[0]3XXXXXX.

Same is true for transparent grey:
0x1F0A0000 (n, n_facebook, sx50hs)
vs
0x[0]0090000.
Is there a real difference in color?

Hallo,

for my IXUS 970 IS 100b,

I tried to make screenshots with chdkptp to show up my color differences.
But first of all in the canon menu the colors on the screenshot are totally different. :(
Can I change this?

Second, the palette on the screenshot is different to the palette on the LCD.
I can move the cursor through the palette and this is reflected in the livescreen with the different palette.

On the LCD I get two palettes for REC and PLAY , but they end up in the same Screenshot.

Is is possible to write the palette hex-value into the color-areas in the Colour Test (System Colours, Histogram Colours, Script/Icon Colours), so that you can see which palette entry is used?

The colors are in AYUV format. The leftmost byte is the A or alpha channel value.

There only appears to ever be 4 alpha values; but presumably the hardware changed at some point so the values changed from 0,1,2&3 to 0,0x1F,0x2F&0x3F.

The YUV values should generate similiar colors on all cameras; although there might be slight differences.

The IXUS 970 currently uses palette 1; but does not send palette information to chdkptp.
So chdkptp uses a default palette to display it's images.

Your screenshot shows a palette that is quite different to the chdkptp default, hence the discrepancy.

edit:
OK, I'm an idiot. Support (palette, frame buffer) routines are missing on the cam.
I have added the needed routines, the difference of palettes is now visible: playback mode rec mode.
Unfortunately, the new yellow/blue menu cursor doesn't look too great in rec mode (the playback and rec mode darker blue colors are not at the same palette index) so I reverted the cursor colors to the old default. Playback and record mode menu (with blue/yellow cursor) and the color test pages are here: http://i.imgur.com/iZqxORo.png
