Great to be able to use my Canon A480 as a stand-alone "security" camera. My older A70 can connect to computer
and time-lapse every 7 seconds or so a high-grade jpeg which I can then use Virtualdub for to 'screen as a movie'.
As most of the burglaries where I live take place at night, I'd like to be able to toggle between a day mode/night
mode (i.r.) (even from a remote site) so's I can get those night shots of various marauding thieves etc. The front
of my house looks straight into the sun, and admitting that CHDK cannot yet stretch to HDR, a handy Iris control
to stem the glare from the midday sun would also be a nice feature.
CHDK is so cool, I cannot tell you, and such features would be the bee's knees, so-to-speak!
