I plan to buy a used Canon camera to install CHDK.
My first usage will be to make timelapses of my house during the construction. I plan to put the camera in a watertight case, and let it on the field. But I also plan to use it to make high-resolution panoramas, using a motorized panohead (I'm developping Papywizard
, a software to control such panoheads).
So, I need:
1) small camera with watertight cases availabe
2) cheap camera (used)
3) normal AA batteries (which can last at least one day in continuous shooting)
4) good support of CHDK, wich can be used in tethered mode, with the ability to control bias exposure over the standard +-2EV
5) wide angle lens (shorter than 35mm if possible, or with optical complement, if it is compatible with watertight case), and tele-lens position (better than 150mm)
You may have other suggestions...
What camera fits most of these conditions?
