PowerShot SX600 HS

Hi I need to take timelapse photos with my PowerShot SX600 HS camera and I was wondering if CHDK flavor for this one is going to materialize any soon ?

(I need it to take pictures from my drone at some time intervals)
Thanks!

sorry, I put this question in wrong category

Unfortunately, there is currently no CHDK port for SX600HS. See the FAQ for more about what this means.

There was a porting thread for SX600, but as far as I can tell nothing significant came out of it https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=11520.msg112908#msg112908

No problem, I moved it to a more appropriate one.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Hi, this topic seems to have gone dormant for a while :)
I've been wishing to use CHDK on SX600HS ever since I got it (used it a lot on older cameras), but looks like there's no build for it.
There are for SX610HS and SX620HS - are they too different to even attempt using?

Yes, unfortunately there is no chance that those will run on SX600, it would need a new port.

It seems to be the last unsupported camera model from the pre-DIGIC6 processor era, I can no longer sleep peacefully knowing this. :D
I will make a port for sx600 but you have to tell me what firmware version you have and you have to be prepared for a few failed attempts before we get a usable port.
I don't have a camera, so you'll have to do all the testing yourself. If you're ready to do it, let me know, without the possibility of testing, there's no point in trying to make a new port.

Absolutely, thank you so much :)

Had to check ver[\s].req methods, those don't seem to work on this one anymore.
The ACID tool says firmware version is "100d".
Canon site does not seem to have any firmware updates available at all.

Thanks, hopefully some working build can fill that gap in near future :)
