The DIY stuff

Since it has been requested by a few people, i've decided i'd make a thread where there will be links most of the DIY projects (not related to the software part of CHDK but mostly to the hardware part).

So, here's what i've managed to find so far :

http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,294.0.html - Building usb-remote-cable
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1590.0.html - DIY wireless remote with a chinese door ring bell
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1488.0.html - Creative underwater housing
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1571.0.html - DIY.Housing for Ixus.
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1843.0.html - HELP!!!... I am with eggs (with KISS setup) - or how to temporarrely attach a filter
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1210.msg11699.html#msg11699 - How to make a card reader ignore "locked" button (in "can CHDK harm the memory card?" thread)

Other posts that could be helpfull:
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1407.0.html - USB remote batteries wrong way. what would happen?
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1405.0.html - Converting the camera to prime focus (as in electronic microscope)
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,982.0.html - Experience/Advice on using Adaptor Tube and Lenses/Filters
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,1839.0.html - s3is disassembled
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,498.0.html - hand (or glove) remote (still in "ideea format")

That's it for now, everyone, if i forgot about a post please post it here and i'll try to edit this first post and add it to the list.

P.S. a question to the forum mods, can we add links to other DIY sites/forums too ? I'm asking cause i don't want this thread to be considered advertising or SPAM.
P.S.2 could a mod make this "sticky" and if it's not in the right place move it where it should be ?

Hej,
Thanks for having done that. Hope it'll get the sticky status as well.

I think it's okej and usefull to also post links to other places, anyway there are references to other sites (S3 disassembled for exemple).

Here is some guy having opened a A540 to remove the IR filter :
A540/A530 ir cut filter removal tutorial (pics) - Canon Digital Photography Forums
(maybe this has already been posted somewhere here but better have the direct link here anyway)

*edited*
Here are few more link which might be usefull :
Blog about repairing diff. cams and problems yourself
Disassemble A430
Disassemble A550/A560
Guy who disassembled many cams, incuding G7, and A70, A95, S45
Disassemble A650 IS

Yes, as long as this doesn't include stuff like "get this at this store", that should be fine...

Cheers

Most of this DIY thread are about the remote... I found this one online, and the price is very very good, plus shipping is free, but I'd like to know if it would work with my Powershot A590 IS + CHDK... I haven't found anything online, perhaps someone has some info on that?

This would not work on an A590.  It's an I/R remote control transmitter, but the A590 has no optical receiver, so this would not work.

You can check my link in this thread on how to make your own IR remote for all the CHDK cameras. But it is a bit more expensive.
