Do you think any of these functions have possibility?
Time display
Calender.
PDF reader
Email Reader.
PPC like GUI.
In text format I think the bible would consume about 5Mb so it wouldn't take a huge amount of space to have any or all of your favorite reading material.

Actually, I did briefly consider copying the PDF I made of the 400plus documentation to my CF card - at 35kb it's not much bigger than the hack itself - but without a PDF reader in the camera, it would just be baggage in the hold! Simpler just to copy it to my phone and use the phone's PDF reader!

Here is a easy, funny Idea.
Have it flash the Rolling Stones tongue before it turns off the screen when you activate the viewfinder IR sensor.
It would give you a kiss and turn the lights out every time you put the camera to your face! lol
People will notice how neat your hacked camera is as well.

Thanks for all the hard work!

idea: could 400plus manage daylight saving time or just remind to adjust time settings?

Looks like a very interesting idea, I always forget to change the clock in the camera myself... will think about this, thanks for the tip.

switching to/from DST depends on the country you live... in USA they change on exact date (if im not mistaken) in the most european countries we change on the last sunday of mart
some african countries change on different criteria, and in Russian Federation and others they removed DST (i believe)...
so to know when to change or inform, we should know what country and what criteria they have.

guys, keep in mind that this is a camera, not a EBook Reader, neither Game Console...

about the games, i dont see why would anyone put efforts in games instead of more extras in hack. not to mention how heavy it would be ...
about the pdf, you can forget about it, it would be almost impossible to integrate pdf parser and then render it in the camera display... besides that it would look like an picture after all... so why wont you just make it a JPG and put it on the camera ?

it could be useful to put some expressions and a list to choose from

Hmmm... from the looks of some of the latest code being worked on, it appears we might soon have one of my most wanted features for the 400D: multiple custom camera settings - each accessible from a menu to save / restore by using the CF card. How cool is that!!!!!!

This should prove to be one of the more popular features this software provides.  Awesome - and thanks in advance!

Then perhaps you may want to give a try to the latest nightly build, and press DP at the settings menu, then at the shortcuts menu... but remember this is still work in progress.

I will gladly.

@eduperez - I PM'ed you as well.   Let me know if you got it (my internet is a bit sketchy at the moment).

You are doing such an excellent job on this hack.
I would like to show it off more but I don't like to brag.
Flashing the Rolling Stones Tongue before the LCD screen blacking out would be a conversation starter.
It would also make the camera very sexy and it would keep true to its "Kiss" name.
It would remind me of my best friend who has passed away. My German Shepard named Fritz would always try to sneak a kiss with a very quick tongue when ever I got my face to close.
I think it would be neat for the cleaning sensor screen also.
Everybody loves dogs.
It would give the camera an excellent personality.
New trick from an old dog?
Do it for my old pal Fritz?
