SX200IS, CHDK possibilities

Hello, and thank you for your fantastic work!

I am a beginner at this and tried out CHDK for my ixus 860 yesterday. I am thinking about getting the SX200is but I have a couple of questions about the CHDK on the sx200is, if you can find the time to answer:

1) does the CHDK allow optical zooming in video mode? What about focus during zooming? If the answer is yes to optical zooming and no to focus, is the optical zooming in video totally useless and blurry?

2) does the CHDK allow to keep the flash down?

3) does the CHDK allow a larger aperture than F/3.4?

4) does the CHDK allow a faster continuous drive than 0.8fps?

5) does the CHDK allow longer recording times?

I don't yet fully understand what a firmware update can do and what are pure mechanical things, but I'm getting there. Thanks alot!!

Hi,

Just wanted to say that the SX200 IS is a fantastic camera, and you should get it regardless of how well CHDK supports it (in my view).

I've owned probably 20 compact digital cameras in the last 9 years.  The SX200 has been the best of the bunch.
