Put CHDK on canon s5is, but when I hit "extra camera options, camera shuts off.  Everything else works, but need extra camera options to run long exposure time for night time photos.  Help!!

Which Canon firmware does your s5is have ? This would be 101a or 101b.

Which CHDK build are your using. The latest stable builds are here
You can also try the development builds at
But let us know which one you were using first.

When you say "extra camera options" what exactly are your referring to ? Do you mean the "Extra Photo Operations" part of the CHDK menu ?

Other things you can try:
Remove the CHDK configuration file. This will be either CCHDK.CFG (for stable builds) or CCHDK2.CFG (for development builds)

Get a romlog from the crash. See this wiki page
This may help us debug the problem.

Try to find out if the crash always happens, or depends on some camera state. For example, if you access the CHDK menu in playback mode, or in different shooting modes.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thank you for your prompt reply.
1)   firmware 101a
2)   The latest stable build
3)   Yes, I mean "Extra Photo Operations"
4)   Playback mode, always

I’ll try to delete CCHDK.CFG
I’ll try to get log from crash.
The first time I downloaded the file everything worked, but hasn’t worked since.  I’ve tried at least ten times with the same crash
Thanks again
