With all of that said, can anyone recommend some of the higher-end or newer Canon cameras which are compatible with CHDK? There are so many cameras that CHDK is compatible with but I do not know which models are the higher end models or the most recent to be released.
The current high end CHDK supported cameras are in the Gn X series (G7 X, G5 X, G7 X mk2) and the and EOS M3 and M10. You could also consider the original G1 X (the mk2 and mk3 are NOT currently supported). If superzooms interest you, then the SX60, SX50 or SX7** series are the obvious options.The EOS Ms are of course not actually P&S, but they're supported by CHDK because they are in the same Canon firmware family as the P&S. There are some quirks and limitations due the fact they are ILCs and CHDK not originally being designed to support that.The G7X mk2 is the first supported Digic 7 port, and may have quirks or unresolved issues.
@painguin As reyalp said, you have choices. From my experience, the M3 is a great choice and you can read about my CHDK experiences with the G1X, G7X, G5X and the M3 on my blog at photography.grayheron.netThe M3 is the ‘best’ for me because I can use my EOS lenses as well. Plus it has a great cage system and my latest hack gives you a dark cloth for the LCD screen

@painguin Yes you can use your EF lenses with an EF to M adaptor. You should buy one that gives you AF and aperature control, ie not a cheaper non electronic one, as then you can use CHDK fully, eg using my script you can undertake perfect focus bracketing.
