Looking around the compatibility and porting threads, I didn't see any mention of the ELPH510HS/IXUS1100. A forum search also turned up nada. The 500 is listed, the 510 is not. Anyone tried their hand at this camera? If not, I might have to see what I can do. I just picked one up, and the 10-minute video limit is highly aggravating.
I just wanted to double check and make sure I wasn't going to be duplicating someone else's work before I started looking at what it would take to perform a port.
Snarky replies? Feels like home. On that note, my apologies if my previous reply had some snark to it.
Good to hear the port work isn't too bad. I work in the hardware verification field, while hardware designs are still in the code phase, so I can do coding. I also spent some time in web dev doing object-oriented PHP and MySQL. The trick is doing software development. I'm not used to SVN, development environments, and the like. I do VIM on a Unix command line and that's about it. So we'll see how long it takes me to ramp up.
Frankly, I either learn or take a loss on purchasing a Canon camera that doesn't quite do what I want it to. There's a fair bit of chromatic aberration on contrasting spots in the shot, but that's acceptable for a point-and-shoot, and shooting in RAW would let me clean a lot of that up if I care about the shot. So... the video length limit is the only real holdout.
I did a quick search, but it looks like the discussions are buried in threads that stretch for uh... quite a few pages. Is it an intrinsic limitation of the hardware? Something that can only be overcome with said scripting?
