22mm wide angle in RAW.
But yes, most people totally ignore this camera, and I have no idea why. For good light, it is the best compact camera of it's size.

Yes it cropped for the lens correction, then resized to 12mp.

I also own a new Ixus 200IS which is the same as SD980 and my firmware is 1.0.1 C. How can I help to make chdk compatible to this firmware version?

The first step is to get the firmware out of the camera. For that you will need some hardware, and you will have to do some soldering. Are you good with that?

Mine is still in order stage (processing). Ironically it's one of the rare times, when people wish that the goods they buy would come with an old firmware.
Ironically, i'm getting a Weller WD1000M Soldering station as my other holiday gift  (something I wished for, since last holidays) :lol
What else do we need to help the gurus people to get hold of the latest firmware?

Two questions for SD980 (Ixus 200IS) owners:
Is there an HD output while recording the video
Is there a timer option for Video mode which allows you to record a frame every 1 or 2 secods?

You will need a phototransistor, a 10K ohm resistor, and a COM interface with a COM cable. If you don't have a computer with a COM interface, an USB com dongle will do.

And you can record stills every 2-3 seconds if CHDK runs on it.

Ok, i have those things. The use of phototransistor puzzles me. Does the camera dump the firmware via a LED?

You mean Videos with 1fps and 0.5fps?

Yes, you dump it via a LED (unless if you want to open it and solder stuff on the board).

And no, I mean still photos, not videos. I don't think you can (yet) to change the frame rate like that. Besides, that would only work at night, or else you need the mechanical shutter to 'fire' after each frame.
