Thanks you so much waterwingz, i was happy to see a beta for the A1200. Unfortunately my cam is 1.00b. Any chance you can port for 1.00b?
This is the first report of a 1.00b.  There is 1.00a but nobody has expressed interest in CHDK for that camera.

I can look at the 1.00b at some point but first somebody needs to dump the firmware. 

Here's the information if you want to take that on :  http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Canon_Basic/Scripts/Dumper
and post the results here.

Beta6 : a1200-100c-1.1.0-beta6

This version allows you to change the <ALT> key from Playback to either Face or DISP.  As always, holding the ALT key down for more than 1/2 second will activate its original function.

This version also corrects the reported bugs when using subject distance overrides ( i.e. manual focus ) in single shot or bracketing modes.   

Notes on SD Override for the A1200

SD overrides will only work when the camera is in AFL mode ( auto focus lock ).   To activate AFL :

1) The camera must be in P mode (on the upper dial) rather than AUTO or SCN.
2) You must be in normal Canon shooting mode (not CHDK <ALT> mode)
3) Press the "left/flower" button after first "half pressing & holding" the shutter release button.

If you complete the above 3 steps correctly,  you should see the Canon software put the letters AFL on the upper right edge of the LCD.   At that point,  any active SD override settings will be active for the following exposures.

Dump is good.  Enough differences between the 1.00B and 1.00C that it will require a new port.
