I see you list M100 in your signature; does that run CHDK? I'm looking for an upgrade and...
Finally the camera has its own window with "panorama" view.

I'm not sure if manoweb was asking about this in general, or as an upgrade for the Cornizzolo installation, but I wouldn't recommend it for this kind of application unless you specifically want to work on the bleeding edge.
Right now the timelapses at Cornizzolo are stable and show no sign of "fatigue", but few years down the line... who knows.
4) having a CHDK-ready camera, that is stable, I know this might be one of the biggest challenges, but I am reluctant to buy older models out of ebayI was really interested in the M100, in fact M200 cameras, as one cannot buy the M100 anymore unless it's used. I have not seen anything about the M200 on this forum, do you have any suggestion?
Wow this is thread hijacking, sorry dolomiti_timelapse, you are doing wonderful work...
Oh I didn't realize that the M200 was that much different. Yeah I noticed it had Digic8, but ... if you say that CHDK will likely never support it, it means that - as most Canon cameras including the cheaper ones will shift to newer versions of the hardware, CHDK will never work on newer models?
Yes, it's likely Digic 7 will be the last generation supported by the current CHDK codebase. See https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=13530.0 for some explanation.Not a bad run, considering the same source works on cameras back 2004, and given how many Canon made, supported cameras will be in circulation for a long time.
As for cheaper cameras moving to Digic 8, you'd expect so, but Canon is barely making cheap models these days anyway. The M200 came out in 2019, and only thing resembling a P&S since is this, which conspicuously doesn't mention Digic at all.
