Brilliant work, testing now.
Any way to get rid of the function popup ring in alt mode?

I just purchased an SD850.  Please continue the development of this CHDK port!  This is terrific.  I'm just starting to learn about all of it's features.

I just purchased an SD850.  Please continue the development of this CHDK port!  This is terrific.  I'm just starting to learn about all of it's features.

There have recently been certain updates to CHDK, a number of new features added. Accordingly, there appeared the so-called "Allbest build 34". Attached is such a build for Ixus 950, compiled from platform sources (attached) and the current official CHDK sources, rev.306. In order for it to compile properly, the latter sources were amended as follows:

core/raw.h:
Code: [Select]
#elif defined (CAMERA_a720) || defined (CAMERA_s5is)replaced with
Code: [Select]
#elif defined (CAMERA_a720) || defined (CAMERA_s5is) || defined(CAMERA_ixus950_sd850)
Overall (except in raw.h), global find/replace:
Code: [Select]
"defined(CAMERA_ixus70_sd1000)"->"defined (CAMERA_ixus70_sd1000) || defined (CAMERA_ixus950_sd850)"
"!defined (CAMERA_ixus70_sd1000)"->"!defined (CAMERA_ixus70_sd1000) && !defined (CAMERA_ixus950_sd850)"
without any manual intervention. Thus, everything that works (or doesn't) in IXUS 70 (a "supported" cam) has a corresponding counterpart in our case.

Please note that this build implements "pseudo-manual focus", but not in the way discussed a few messages up: the cam always refocuses first, even when override is in place. Before testing the new binaries, it is advisable to delete CHDK\CHDK.CFG from SD card. Otherwise, I didn't test much myself, except for the very basic things.

It seems a few people were interested in this port, although nobody provided a feedback. As I'm now retiring from the "porting" business, if there are Ixus950 owners out there that wish to use CHDK and keep up with its progress in the future, your best bet is to get your cams "officially supported" by CHDK keepers/developers. Ask them.

Thank you so much for all your work! The only reason I purchased an SD850 was because of your effort in porting.  I have only tested a few things so far, but it has worked very well.

Great job porting the cam, whoever! :D
Just has to be added to the standard builds!

whoever,
thanks for the info about shut_down. Actually there is a loop
 _SetAutoShutdownTime(1); // 1 sec
  for (i=0;i<200;i++) _UnlockMainPower(); // set power unlock counter to 200 or more
that should compensate for the disable_lcd function, maybe that is to short for some cameras.
And documentation :-[ ,well ...

The 'allbest-ixus950_sd850-100c-49' doesn't work on my IXUS 950IS.

When trying to do the firmware update it hangs. Waited for 5 minutes, but still nothing.

The special button lights up in blue (never seen it actually lighted) and then I have to remove the battery. No buttons work. Even when I open the battery lock, it doesn't shut down.

I've got this UpgradeLog.txt that was created on my memory card. How can I submit it to the developer team?

(And yes, I have the english.lng in my root dir aswell - haven't forgott it.)
