Hi all,

I just discovered CHDK today and installed it in a 4 GB SD card for my PowerShot A610.
I can't believe how easy it has been. And I know I still have only the slightiest idea of the capabilities, but only THIS is already so much more than the stock firmware could. Wow.
Even the fact that ACID and SDMInst did everything they did... even being Java... has left me speechless.

People, hats off. Thank you all. I hope I can collaborate a bit; I will try.

(as a little side note, I edited the Mac FAQ because the autobuild downloads URL was broken, now it points to the same one than the latest ACID properties : http://hacki.someserver.de/ )

Regards!

Welcome to CHDK easyness !

For now, use it and you will get addicted, and will want to go further using Lua script and after some times, if you are C programming familar, you will be interested in CHDK-shell to recompile CHDK at your taste.

Mhm... too happy, too soon. It DID work, for a while; as a quick test I recorded a 15 minutes , 1.65 GB video. But then I popped the card into the computer, checked the video (it was fine), deleted it...
... and now the camera won't do anything with that card. "Memory card error" is all it says. Reformatting and reusing SDMInst doesn't change anything. What can have changed?? I have already tried retracing my steps from the blank-from-the-shop card to the successful CHDK boot. No dice.

Bummer. I guess I'll better start posting in the questions section.

Regards.
