I added both g7x2 and sx280hs-102d manually


Please remove the G7X2.


If you had read the thread where you asked to add this to the camera list file you would know that this is not a working port.
It is a very very very early attempt to get DIGIC 7 working.


It does nothing but blink an LED and lock up the camera.


The code is in SVN for others to examine and maybe come up with ideas on how to proceed.
Right now DIGIC 7 support is at a dead end.

The issue of not being able to use CHIMP for unofficial builds has come up several times in the last two years.  Which is quite often given the fairly low volume of new users joining the project.

Yes, I am aware of this issue. Unfortunately, I'm not currently available to provide a major CHIMP update.

I did read and understand the status of the G7 X Mark II port.

The addition of a camera to CHIMP only means that once it is supported by CHDK no change to CHIMP would be required.

Until then, the only difference from the user's perspective is the ability to proceed to the Action step. I attached two screenshots to demonstrate the two scenarios.

The source of truth for supported ports is the 'camera_list.csv' file, not the 'platform' directory structure.

If you use that, as other programs do, then your perceived problem goes away - new cameras will be available if / when they get added to the file.
CHDK ports:
  sx30is (1.00c, 1.00h, 1.00l, 1.00n & 1.00p)
  g12 (1.00c, 1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  sx130is (1.01d & 1.01f)
  ixus310hs (1.00a & 1.01a)
  sx40hs (1.00d, 1.00g & 1.00i)
  g1x (1.00e, 1.00f & 1.00g)
  g5x (1.00c, 1.01a, 1.01b)

I updated CHIMP to support all future revisions/versions of known cameras.

Please try the attached version and let me know if you encounter any problems.

Please note that this version requires .NET framework 4.6.1 (or later).

Edit 2019-10-16: Updated to beta.
