Hello everyone.

I have got a camera A580 firmware 1.00C, I had hope it work with CHDK by firmware upgrade but there's not possible!.

I don't understand how to use the "porting for firmware" but if there is anything I can do with the cam then I will.

I have got the cam and I can do test with it. I wait for your indications...

I'm electronics technician.

(sorry but english is not my native languaje)

ThankÅ› in advance
Javier

If you are the owner of an A580 we need your help improving the manual focus / subject distance override capability of CHDK.

Please read the instructions posted here < Link to Testing Instructions > and test your camera.

TIA.
