Switched to video mode, started "filming", and ran the mechanical zoom end to end a couple of times. With both versions the high pitch buzz of the zoom motor was very audible in the resulting recording. So I don't think this did what you intended.
Thanks for testing. Maybe a silly question: Did you check status of "Mute during zomming" in Video parameters menu?
There is a quite loud audible click as the mic is enabled and disabled but the nasty whine of the zoom motor & gears is gone.
The low light mode is not usable for the RAW/DNG feature. The A1200 CHDK port needs a small correction, that in this mode no RAW / DNG files are created.
I'm planning to make a documentary timelapse video so I would like to take RAW images to have an edge in the post processing. Currently I'm having a class 4 SD card which takes about 4 sec to write the RAW file into the card. This might be a problem in situations where I would like to have a 2-3 sec interval between two shots. In the internet I found this class 10 SD card which has very high write speeds of 45MBps. I heard that write speeds also depend on the camera, so before buying this card I want to confirm whether this camera will actually be able write RAW files at such high speeds into the class 10 SD card.
Also, the Canon firmware does a lot of image processing when it creates a jpg. If you have not done so, I'd strongly suggest you experiment with the post processing work flow you will need for all those RAW/DNG images. It might not be worth the effort for most of the images you will be taking.
As far as buying SD cards online, be aware that there are reported to be a lot of fakes out there - class 2 cards with labels on them that say class 10. Make sure that whoever you buy from has a good return policy.
