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.
