My goals is now to pimp IXUS cameras being always-with-you super macro tools.
@nirschi, I applaud your goal!! MF on our IXUS cameras would rock! I'm just wondering how all of this played out... I have an SD500 (IXUS700), and would love to see if some of the manual focus bugs have been worked out... I have never compiled my own build, but if it will help troubleshoot for the community, just let me know how, and I'll test for you!!
Also, the goal of having a MF "magnified zoomed focus preview window" is great for cams without that feature... any success with that?
Cheers and my thanks for all of your hard work!
