Best Used Camera for CHDK?

I have been using Canon's remote capture software to create some time lapse movies with my old A75.

Does anyone have a suggestion for the best camera to pick up on ebay for use with CHDK?

Looking to spend around $150.00 or so and have the highest chance of success with CHDK.

Interested in time lapse, long exposure and exposure bracketing for HDR.

Thanks

Edit - Sorry for the noob post. Found a couple threads discussing this after I posted.

For 150 bucks you can get the A570IS camera (I think it's like 130 or 140 new, you might get it cheaper refurbished). I have it and works great, and takes good pictures (when in RAW mode).

As you said - long exposure...
I would go with one that has the smallest pixel count per square inch (i.e. bigger CCD size and smaller number of pixels).
It is just for the noise thing. My favorites is still A610 (unfortunately man discontinued). May be some chance on EBay.

CCD 1/1.8" for 5.1M
Most new ones will have 1/2.5" CCD with more than 7M or 1/7" with more than 9M.

I am a tripod guy. If you are not you may want to go with an IS version as recommended by RADuP.
