Great job.
but

I'm getting 'unsupported propset 12' error on a default script
Thanks for mentioning that. I've updated the script to include propset 12
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Firstly, thanks for porting CHDK to this camera!
Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, but is it currently possible to get clean HDMI out from the camera, or is that not implemented? Can't figure it out.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, this camera does not support HDMI out in shooting mode at all. We haven't found any way to enable that on cameras which don't support it.

I am new to this forum, so forgive me if my question is stupid.
I checked the autobuild and I cannot find the SX730HS in stable build.
However, I do find it in unstable build download page.
Does that mean only unstable built is available?
How usable is the unstable build at the moment?
I just want to be able to take RAW and have long exposure.
I dont care much about video.
Thanks in advance.

Additional information: I am looking to buy this camera as I like the small form factor and 40x zoom. Would there be another model that has similar function but has a stable built?

Yes, currently, all digic 6 ports are only available in the "unstable"

Both those features work on sx730, and it's fine for day to day use. Actually the "unstable" is only unstable because I've been procrastinating making the stable...

Not in that form factor. There are other long zoom cameras, but they are larger.

Thanks for the information.
I think I am going to get this model and explore CHDK.
I will pull out my point and shoot for night sky picture while others are using their big DSLR.

FWIW, the SX730 and all similar models have quite "slow" lenses, F8 at full zoom.  You'll definitely need a tracking mount to do much astrophotography at the long end of the zoom, and even at the wide end you'll see trailing with exposures over 30s or so.

I will probably do ISO 3200 24mm 3.3 20s. So no need to worry about star trailing.
Thanks.

I am trying to get my version number and it seems that ver.req and vers.req method does not work at all.
So I get the dump with extend.m script.
But then I have no idea how to get the firmware version number from the script.
Help!
