    Is there anything I can do in the meantime (in terms of testing things/debugging) so I can use the motion detect script with the SX40HS?

    No, the camera needs the JPG file for the preview. To save memory you can select the smallest picture size.

    Hello,
     I can't express how amazing this piece of software is. Thanks so much.

    I wanted to know the minimum and maximum values for Shutter and Aperture with the CHDK Override. SX40HS is not yet listed in the camera capabilities page( http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CameraFeatures ) though SX30IS is, so I guess at least those values should work.. Has anyone been able to establish this?

    Hi guys

    How about controlling sx40 with android phone. We know that PTP camera GUI can control camera using USB then it possible to develop a android app to control camera also.
    This app Remote Release (USB) (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.remoterelease&hl=en) can be used to control EOS series with DryOS .
    As sx40 also has DryOS , I think it is possible to develop this kind of app.
    CHDK developer !!! what do you think

    There has been a little discussion about this on the CHDK irc channel.   FWIW, if you were to make such an app, it would work with any CHDK camera.  However, it will probably not work with many phones as they are not capable of being USB hosts (as noted in the link you posted).

    Hi,

    Was curious as to the status of CHDK+motion detection script, the camera turns off, any updates with that or anything I can test?

    Hi,

    So far, this version has stayed up for 8 hours plus:
    sx40hs-100l-1.2.0-2072-full_BETA

    Will update if it has any issue, so far it has been good.

    Justin.
