Sorry for the late post of this! I got a message a few days ago from a user (Eugenia), who's an experienced filmmaker.

She tested CHDK on video and didn't end up liking the final results, with some fierce comments on the CHDK devs.  ;)

Read for yourself on her blog and comment/help out.

Cheers

Following thepanoguy's post on the previous page, the PARIS project (Paper Aircraft Released Into Space) has finally been launched. A helium balloon reached 90,000 feet, then released a 3 foot wingspan paper aircraft with two cameras and tracking equipment. The Canon A560 with CHDK intervalometer achieved some stunning shots.

Congratulations guys!

Ooooh, reyalp was faster. Anyway, here is the info on the printed article :)
IEEE Spectrum, December 2010, pages 18-19.

I even prepared a scanned version that I wanted to attach, this seems unnecessary though after seeing the same contents on reyalp's link.

Not directly CHDK related, but Canon hacks don't appear to be limited to P&S and DSLR  OS ...

camera encryption cracked

cheers,

Today, the Nintendo 3DS is introduced  :-

http://www.nintendo.com/3ds/hardware

A group member tells me that the first movie available for this device was made using TX1's and SDM :-

http://www.nintendo.com/3ds/system-update

Although SDM does not provide precision-synchronisation for movies, it was possible to monitor the degree of synch by the amount of overlap with a 'ghost' image on the monitor (caused by a 'leaky' video cable).
The cameras were restarted until the overlap was minimised.
The cameras then didn't drift too much from the beginning of
the take to the end.

Another mention to CHDK in lifehacker.com:

.  which links to their previous article - and somebody complained in the comments of that article that it was a duplicate of a previous posting  ::)

Publicity is good any way you can get it though.

CHDK (/ SDM ?) in the stratosphere again http://www.thestar.com/news/article/1120808--toronto-teens-send-lego-man-on-an-a-balloon-odyssey-24-kilometres-high?bn=1

Awesome to see high schoolers doing this :D

Canon, the company that made the cameras used on the Lego man's trip, said it would give Ho and Muhammad top-of-the-line cameras so they could continue their "creativity and inspiration."
I wonder if the new cameras will come with scripting capability  :P
