    Phill I read your answer in DPR forum about
    "2011 models support CHDK autoboot from any size SD card, partitioning is no longer required for large cards. "
    Will this be implement in G12 CHDK also?

    Probably not, the boot process is controlled by the Canon firmware.
    So unless Canon release a firmware update that adds this capability it won't happen.

    This could also be a clever marketing strategy by Canon to encourage CHDK users to buy new cameras :)

    Oh, that's a bummer.
    Canon marketing strategy is complete mystery to me.
    Handicap important features on one side (intervalometer) while  adding totally useless ones on the other side (Color swap)

     -Update for G12 & SX30 to support very large, partitioned SD cards

    If you have an SD card that is larger than 32GB, and you partition it for CHDK, and you use Windows, then you can't format the large partition as FAT32. Windows will only allow it to be formatted as exFat.
    The newer cameras support exFat partitions so this change allows CHDK to work in this configuration - with a small FAT16 partition to boot off, and a large exFat partition to store data.

    No functional changes in this patch - just updated some of the comments to avoid confusion.

    There is a free utility you can use to format partitions as FAT32:

    http://www.partitionwizard.com/

    You can also use this to partition the SD card with the small FAT16 partition though I used the CHDK function.

    Thanks for that.

    Attached is a test version for firmware 1.00g if/when someone with this version want to try it.

    Hi Phil,

    got the G12 the other day, found out about CHDK, got excited at first, then disappointed when I found out 100g was not supported, then excited again when I found this thread! :)

    Tried your test version, as far as I can tell it works! It loads, has the CHDK menu and everything, even though as a first time user I cant really tell if anything's missing.

    One weird thing I noticed: I changed the video setting to "quality" in the CHDK menu, and recording stopped after exactly 2mins. Got an 8GB SD Card with about 6GB free space.

    Hooray for Phil, the hero user!

    Do you get a flashing warning symbol at the top of the screen - this indicates the SD card isn't fast enough to write the video data.
    What happens if you lower the quality value value?
