I'm looking for a good compact camera (used) for CHDK. It will function as a backup/secondary or nerd project camera.
So far, my top picks are the
-SX220HS (or similar model)
The S95 is almost certainly my top choice, except it can't shoot 1080p video.
The SX220HS would be great due to its zoom and 1080p capability, but it doesn't have the control ring and some other high-end features. However, this is a secondary camera. My main camera has a superzoom and it, along with my phone, can shoot 1080p video.
So would you recommend the S95 as a good used camera for CHDK? AFAIK, it was a top-of-the-line point & shoot in 2010 and still solidly measures up today.
(Yes, I know the S100 and S110 can shoot 1080p, but they seem to be significantly more expensive on eBay.)
