I'm waiting to buy a IXUS115HS, but there's no stable release of CHDK, the main reason why im a Canon fan is because it supports RAW via CHDK,  but in these alpha releases of CHDK , there are many bugs with RAW. :( Should i go for the camera or not?. someone post some nice images of this camera, especially in low light :) and some raw images. :) i would like to see the results of this camera :) should i buy this ?. or save for the HS220?. On a tight budget, or should i go for the A945 Instead?. which is supported by CHDK.

Developers there are many waiting for a stable release of CHDK for 115HS ! :) ..

2ryandigweed, both cameras are good, but as I know, there are no so many differencies between these to cameras, but price. so, it's up to you. good luck! you can also read there http://snapsort.com/compare/Canon-ELPH-100HS-vs-Canon-ELPH-300HS

I have gone through that site. The only thing i like better about the HS310 is the wide angle lens. :) Anyway.. so should i save up for the HS115 and take a chance to wait for the release of CHDK, or go for a  A495 and load it with CHDK :)?. 

If i do purchase a HS115, what version numbr should i buy?

2ryandigweed, I know nothing about a495, but hs115 is very good camera. I like it even without normal chdk. I'm sure, that it's better than a495. if I were you, i would save money for hs115.

alpha5 101a
there are some bugs in high speed video: optical zoom doesn't work and after pressing autofocus button, this high speed mode becomes regular speed mode.

Great advice, i heard it's a good camera. But im going to take ur word for it, as it's quite an old model, and i mainly like the new 115, because of the HS, i like shooting without flash in low light without getting high noise, and blur.. Hopefully it should do that, and not mess up my photos ! :)

I agree that the HS115 is good for low light. But try not to avoid flash altogether.
The camera has a flash mode called "Slow Synchro" where it uses the flash, but leaves the shutter in for a while.

This results in the person being lit nicely, and the lights in the background either make amazing patterns across the image, or become brighter.

Here are some strange examples: http://www.digital-photography-school.com/13-great-slow-sync-flash-images

Hi Devs,

Its great to see chdk bring ported to ixus115. My camera has a firmware version 1.00c, and I have successfully loaded alpha5.

I am fairly new to this stuff and have not yet explored all the great features of chdk. For the time being, I am interested in enabling manual focus (similar to touch-focus in smartphone cameras where u can focus on any part of image). Can this feature be enabled by chdk? and is that working for this camera?

Thanks in advance for you help.
