New test build with the new COLORMATRIX1 from IXUS 175, for the better colors in the Raw (dng) files.

I checked in the patch.

A few comments:
This camera probably needs CAM_AV_OVERRIDE_IRIS_FIX and the associated semaphore in init_required_fw_features

The symptom of this that AV bracketing in continuous mode doesn't work, but based on other recent cameras just implementing without checking that it's needed should be fine.

I see all the  CAM_SD_OVER_IN defines are set. Have SD overrides been tested?

The DNG active area should be set. A procedure for finding it described at the end of https://app.assembla.com/spaces/chdkptp/wiki/DNG_Processing
I can do this if someone uploads a sample DNG.

I'd suggest adding the WIFI button as an option for alt on cameras where it's a stand-alone button, since it's likely to be rarely used in normal shooting.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thanks!
Everything will be added in a separate patch.
I've sent private messages to known users for dng file and mftest.lua script.

Hi!
I apologise for not being able to help with testing recently. I have however attached the DNG file and the result of the mftest.lua script. The DNG file is of a picture of the sky, hopefully that's bright enough. Let me know otherwise, or if there is anything else I can do to help at this moment.

Cheers!

Thanks for testing.
It seems that camera allows SD override only when AFL or MF is set.
