Hi All,

I hope anyone who owns A490 is reading this. If you could help testing the different features I'd be really glad, since my girlfriend literally kidnapped our camera and I can't work further on CHDK. :-) She really likes it with the new features. :-D So please drop a comment if something works or doesn't work for you.

In the meantime, I'm trying to continue. I've found all the PROPCASE_DIGITAL_ZOOM_xxx properties and I'm eager to try the new code as soon as I can get the camera back.

I can test this stuff :).

Send me latest build, all features will be checked thoroughly.

With regards,

The A490 beta version from "CHDK-SVN Autobuild Download" does not work on my A490 bought on June 2010. The LCD will be black after updated firmware from menu, no CHDK logo.  Something is wrong? Confused.

What is the canon firmware version of your camera ?

edit: see http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#Q._How_can_I_get_the_original_firmware_version_number_of_my_camera.3F
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Has anybody gotten bracketing to work? I don't think it does.
Admittedly I am new to CHDK but I've followed these instructions
http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/UBASIC/Scripts:_Make_ANY_Single-Shot_Intervalometer_into_an_HDR-Bracketing_Script
ie. set Tv bracketing values in CHDK, set Custom Timer in camera, run an intervalometer script (this one http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/UBASIC/Scripts:_Ultra_Intervalometer )
It takes three perfectly unbracketed photos. Any suggestions?

A490 has no DISP button, so I use the CameraVersion. It displays the version is 100 E. Perhaps the firmware version causes the problem.

Using the acid, get the same firmware version 100e for my Canon PowerShot A490. The current A490 beta CHDK seems not working for 100e.

Correct, the only supported version is 100f, and your symptom shows that this build is not compatible with 100e. A new "sub" will be needed for this camera.

As far as I know, we don't have a firmware dump of 100e, so you can help by getting one. The simplest way to do this is using the canon basic dumper:
http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Scripts/Dumper
Be sure to read the card setup page to configure your card correctly as a script disk.

If you are a programmer, you can probably do the sub port without too much trouble, see
http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Adding_support_of_a_new_firmware_version
and waterwingz tool http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK-PT_:_A_tool_for_porting_different_firmware_versions_on_the_same_camera
Don't forget what the H stands for.
