GoPro Firmware editing

Hi! 

I am WAY out of my league on this topic, but I would like to change the firmware on my GoPro Hero. 

I am GUESSING that it involves using a software to open the bin file and interpreting it and hopefully making a change. 

The result I am hoping for is as follows: 

When shooting stills, the algorithm that governs the shutter speed and iso (aperture remains constant) tends to let the shutter speed drop quite low before resorting to raising the iso past the iso100 base.  This results in both vibration artifacts and motion blur when shooting from an RC helicopter.  Experience shows me that not letting the iso drop below 200 would bring the minimum shutter speed to a more reasonable one 500th of a second for most circumstances. 

Any suggestions? 

Thanks!

You're posting in the wrong place Scott. You need to post in this thread http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=5890.0

There's no CHDK for the GoPro, so there's no point in posting in the CHDK Development section - you need to look in the Non-Canon Development section.

Thanks, zeno!  Been awhile since I've been so green about a tech subject....   :-[
