CHDK support depends on a developer having the camera, time, interest and ability. This is essentially random and doesn't have much to do with the camera.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

...and if you were asking if there's something wrong or unusual because it's not supported for remote control by gphoto or cam4you_remote... no, nothing unusual there. Canon has chosen not to include any remote control support for their inexpensive models these days, meaning those programs physically can't support remote control of most current Canon point&shoots.

There's only PTP image download and if you are lucky, PTP upload too.

Thanks for the quick and helpful replies!   :)  :)

actually, yes, the a470 does support PTP/MTP and even includes software to download images from and upload images to the camera (ZoomBrowser EX/CameraWindow). 

The only thing missing is the abilitity to trigger the camera to shoot, which I dearly would love to have for a photographic automaton I am working on.

thanks again,

bruce

There is a beta version on the first comment of this thread - although perhaps best to read near end of thread as well for updates.

any idea how long it will take for an autobuild to come out?  Sounds like they really made some head way....

Would love a duelling pair of a470
