Canon IXUS 80 IS (SD1100)

I'm a complete newbie, and I have a Canon IXUS 80 IS. I saw a post on Lifehacker that says how to "Turn Your Point-and-Shoot into a Super-Camera"

Camera Hacks: Turn Your Point-and-Shoot into a Super-Camera

Is my camera compatible?

Could you guide me through how to do this on my camera? I'm having trouble finding the files needed.

Thanks.

UPDATE

I had a look at the pages you guys suggested, thanks. But i'm still having problems.

On this SD1100IS - CHDK Wiki page, it links to the download link the supposedly works with my camera. I downloaded that, renamed the file that works with my camera firmware version (chdk_sd1100_fw101a_fdf355c) to DISKBOOT.bin. Then I used CardTricks to format my SD card as FAT and made it bootable.

Then I copied the DISKBOOT.bin file over to my SD, locked it, put it in the camera, then turned it on.
But I dont know what to do now. On this page FAQ - CHDK Wiki it tells me to press the menu button and choose the "firmware update" option. But it isnt there. Its just all the default camera options.

Sorry to be a pain but please help me. ;)

Hello & welcome dascooby !

CHDK is available for the IXUS 80 with firmware 1.00C and 1.01A, so first check your firmware version: FAQ: How can I get the original firmware version number of my camera ?.

-> You'll find all informations you need here: CHDK wikia, the download for your camera you'll find on the camera's wiki page (search for ixus 80 there)...

@dascooby

in case you haven't found the page yet (the Wiki can be a bit confusing ...), it's here:

SD1100IS - CHDK Wiki

Hello & welcome, dundert !

can the interval time for the built in time lapse feature be altered using CHDK?
Yes :D
...with the help of a little script - you'll find it here on my wikia user page: Fe50#unleash_Canon_TL
