Why is there no camcorder support? I want to hack my Legria HFS200 so I can take super long exposures and all that!

Because no one has figured out how to do it. If someone had, the resulting hack wouldn't be closely related to the current CHDK, because the hardware and software are very different.

Many person years of effort went into getting CHDK to the point it's at today, doing the same thing for a different platform means starting from scratch.

There has been some work on DV cameras, but nothing useful to end users so far AFAIK:
See http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Camcorders and http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=1641.0
Don't forget what the H stands for.
