Work in progress, see http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=4338.0 .
Preliminary CHDK PTP (USB camera communication) stuff is in autobuilds already and works fine but is only enabled by default for some cameras that have been tested. Video feed with PTP is not in trunk, but has been demonstrated by ewavr before (it'll be there one day we hope, but coding CHDK is nobody's day job -- the major obstacle is to make it work smoothly with all or even most cameras instead of just one or two models).

Nice find, btw. From a quick look at their web page it seems rather likely that they are selling a modified or rewritten CHDK (features other than PTP stripped away, with modifications to PTP code to meet their needs).

If you're in hurry, you may find a model that has PTP already enabled in autobuilds, hook its video output to the PC (composite video -> USB digitizers are cheap) and use CHDK PTP to control the camera, shoot and transfer photos.

Sorry for my bad english, but if I understand right in the next time I can get also Live View over USB with some cameras? and do you know with witch camears it works in the future?

Do you know, if the camera have a HDMI output (Canon PowerShot SX210 IS) if I can see also a live View over HDMI?

Yes, but there is no schedule. More or less all cameras that run CHDK, I suppose.

I'd be surprised if they didn't, but I've never used one. If you're able to find a user's manual in the internet, you can probably find out.
