    My version of G10 is G10-1.04A, and the version I tested is beta 2C.

    I just test the function "Video Parameter", Enable [Video Quality Control?], enable [Enable optical zoom], and then set the AF Key as [Shutter].
    When I record video, it works great! When I change location or distance, adjust the focus, I can re-focus by press shutter lightly.

    When I test [Extra Photo Operations], the [Override shutter speed] and [value factor] or [shutterspeed enum type] seems useless. For example, I can see there is [TV:200] in live view, but when I press shutter, the [TV:200] become existing shutter setting such as [TV:15]. When I take photo, the shutter time
     is 15 seconds. The shutterspeed override setting seems can't work at all.

    Thanks for the update - I'm glad to hear CHDK video is working well on the 1.04A release of Beta2.   Reports from owners of cameras with firmware 1.02A are similiar.

    This is not a surprise. Per the <link to beta release note> from earlier in this thread :

       12) None of the shooting functions are running yet.  The menus might let you enter a shutter time of 1/5000 of a second, but your camera will not take pictures at that speed.

    The beta test team is working on beta version 3 and things are starting to look a lot better there.  Send me a PM with a real email address if you'd like to join that team.

    I saw that the note 14 is "CHDK menus should no longer disappear when the background changes when the camera is in "shoot" mode", but sometimes I met same issue during my test....

    I've seen the same on occasion.   But trust me,  its much better than it used to be !

    UPDATE : Looks like the menu fix did not make it into all the beta 2 versions.  It will be there shortly in Beta 3 - sorry.

    Still typing w/ one hand thanks to a broken collarbone last week, but I can't help but to report I'm having extremely exciting results with beta 3! (more detailed feedback when my wpm improves  :) )

    And a slightly more interesting TL I did today:

    Also, an old version of the motion detection script I had from my old SD750's days works great. I have "MDFB-080914.bas" which looking at that filename makes me think that by old, i mean ancient.

    Waterwingz, you are a great hero to G10 owners!!  :D

    As a point of clarification,  beta 3 has only been released to the members of the CHDK G10 beta test team. My goal, as always, is to have each release stable for all firmware versions with only a short list of known bugs prior to making it generally available.

    At this point, beta 3 only needs CHDK RAW fixed (it shuts down the camera when used and does not store anything) and it needs scaling for Zebra and Edgeoverlay fixed.  Both need a little of my time and then I should be read for a more general release.

    I assume you mean that your have firmware 1.02A ?  If so, you need to use the CHDK version for firmware 1.02A. The CHDK version must match your camera version or it will not work.

    No - Canon does not provide a update for the G10 to convert from 1.02A to 1.04A.  Just use your 1.02A camera with CHDK for the 1.02A.  I do not believe that you will ever know the difference.

    Thanks waterwingz for your fast reply.
    I've downloaded and unzip the CHDK version match with my 1.02A.
    Then I copied all files into my SD Card.
    But when I turn on my G10 by PLAYBACK MODE then press MENU, I could NOT find the "FIRMWARE UPDATE" function! +_+.  Also tried to press Playback button twice, but nothing happened.

    What should I do?

    Thanks ^^
