     It seems that the Dark Frame Subtraction setting is ignored (101b).  I saw other cameras had that problem.  Can anyone else confirm?

    When you override the ND filter to IN, the f stop stored in the file reads 3.0 (depending on the focal length) not 9.0

    Not correctly works "Override shutter speed" (102c). It is impossible to expose value more than 100. If to put "Value Factor" 100 and "Override shutter speed" 100 on the basic screen value 10000 is shown, but removes all the same 100 seconds a maximum. It is possible to correct it?

    Hello & welcome, iceman !
    Not correctly works "Override shutter speed" (102c). It is impossible to expose value more than 100. If to put "Value Factor" 100 and "Override shutter speed" 100 on the basic screen value 10000 is shown, but removes all the same 100 seconds a maximum. It is possible to correct it?

    100x100 = 10'000 seconds = ~166,67 minutes = ~2.78 hours exposure time - not possible on the A470, also such a long exposure time doesn't make sense.

    The A470 CHDK version is limited to 64s exposure time (e.g. shutter speed [1] x value factor [64] ).

    Probably to remove this restriction? 2,78 hours certainly do not matter, and here at least 5 minutes very much even are necessary.

    This can be done, but it takes some work. See http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,3461.0.html
    Don't forget what the H stands for.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but can anyone tell me whether the A470 (101b) supports two partitions?

    I have a 16gb SDHC card I'm trying to get auto-boot working on and the camera will not recognize the "large" partition.  (It will boot CHDK, but only from the "small" partition.

    (I'm pretty sure I'm following all the instructions correctly, but I figured I ask so I don't continue to bang my head against the wall!)

    For now, I'm manually starting CHDK using the "Update Firmware" option.

    The purpose of the first smaller partition is to be able to auto-start chdk (canon firmware can only access smaller partition on boot be able to auto-start chdk). After chdk has startet it "hides" the first partition to fool canon firmware to use the second partition (store your images/movies there).
    Its correct behavior chdk auto-boot only works if chdk files are on first partion.

    Read http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Bootable_SD_card for more info.

    agreed in principle - but 'chdk files' appears rather subject to misunderstanding, so here's my attempt
    to describe how I set my cards up (SDMINSTE.EXE helps Windows users to swap partitions)

    hope that helps,
