Hi, I'm considering buying an SX200. I notice that it says the CHDK is available for SX200s with certain firmware versions but not others. If I'm buying a camera, e.g. from Amazon or even from a physical store, is there a way to tell the firmware version before I buy it? I would hate to buy one and find out the CHDK doesn't work because of bad luck with getting firmware version a instead of d. (I'm sorry if this has already been answered, but I did search for it in the forums and didn't find anything.)That adapter thing looks awesome, btw. If you figure out if it works for this camera, let us know. I was actually considering getting the SX230 because it has a better zoom, but it doesn't seem to have the chdk (yet?) and that is more important to me.
I think the problem with taking a photo in-store is that the floor model is not the same as the one they sell you. And usually once you open the box you can't return it, at least not without paying some expensive re-stocking fee. So it doesn't say the firmware version on the box, I take it? Serial number tracking sounds potentially promising - if I decide to actually get one I'll look into that. Also good to hear that porting could work. Do you think its something I could count on? Thanks!
I'm in the USA, yes. I thought most places had a restocking fee for electronics - like you pay them $15 if you return an opened camera, and so if you wanted to do it a bunch of times to get the right firmware it wouldn't be worth it.
Sorry, but what exactly does that mean? On the list of supported cameras it says SD200 firmware 1.00d but not 1.00a, for example. Does that mean the 1.00a has not been ported? Or does the fact that the SD200 is there at all mean it has been ported and thus switching firmware versions should be fine?
(I may actually hold out awhile longer to see what new cameras get supported - I covet that 14x zoom, but not without the CHDK - I'm having a lot of fun with the MD script to catch lightning on my current camera, but its zoom, megapixels, and angle of view are all pretty low compared to the new cameras.)
If the camera is available with CHDK for any firmware version at all, then getting a release for a different firmware version of that camera is 100% do-able if you know what you are doing or willing to learn.
Might be a good plan but CHDK ports for cameras often lag by years, if they happen at all. There is no way to tell.
Hello,I am looking for a way to fit a polarising filter to the sx200 and came across the following item on Amazon.comhttp://www.amazon.com/Diameter-PowerShot-SX-210IS-auxiliary-Microfiber/dp/B0049CU1ZO
I have accidently made some raw file in crw format. Dng2ps2 does not recognise it, is there an other easy way to convert them to dng format? thanks
