No CHDK for my A490 using Stick - Please HELP

I am new to all of this and to be honest quite overwhelmed by it all, but I have to learn as I need to connect my A490 camera to my PixHawk flight controller for mapping.

I have got as far as loading Java to run STICK, opened an image from my A490 and the outcome was -

NO OFFICIAL BUILD IS AVAILABLE FOR THIS CAMERA

Strangely enough the A490 is on the CHDK Camera List

Can anybody please help me get this to work?

Thanking you in advance

Regards
John

There are CHDK builds for three A490 firmware versions - 100d, 100e and 100f. What is the firmware version of your camera (STICK tells you that)? If it's not one of the 3 that are supported then someone will have to create a build for you.


If it is one of the three then something is going wrong with STICK. Let me know if so - send the sticklog.txt file (which will be in the STICK directory after you've run STICK) to me at ZENOSHRDLU at GMAIL dot COM
