Hi folks,

I'm a newby looking to purchase the most recent affordable camera model with a working port.  There's a couple of cheap SX410IS models on Gumtree at the moment and it seems to be one of the flashier models, so I'm trying to figure out if it will work for me.

It's been a long time since the last post in this thread and I see the build is still on the unstable releases page.

Did a showstopping issue arise, or did people just get busy, or perhaps moving the release to the stable branch was overlooked?

Cheers

Nigel
The development of this camera is completed.
All features provided by CHDK are supported, do not worry about alpha status.

@blackhole
Do you still have this camera? I noticed something suspicious in the port's lib.c and wondering if CHDK LED signals (everything that uses started(), such as saving raw, saving ram dump, etc) work on this port.

Even if you don't have the cam anymore, do you remember where this came from:
#define LED_PR 0xc022f1fc

I found the same typo(?) in the ixus160 port - I corrected it there.

This typo came from trunk 4693,almost two years ago. :o
For miracle there are no major problems compared to the corrected build.
Patch is attached.

Thanks. Just to be sure: with the patch, do you see the CHDK LED activity?

As far as I can tell, DIGIC 4+ cameras have their LEDs in the 0xc022dxxx address range. The 0xc022fxxx range is also valid, but that seems to provide a different kind of hardware access (that's where D4+ cams have the 3 words worth of GPIO status bits that are used for keyboard).
I can't rule out that the rogue GPIO access may have played a role in those ixus160 accidents.

I see this activity, one long flash when the camera creates dng and a few brief flashes while saving the file to the SD card.

Thanks. Added the correction in changeset 5083.
