    Hello Everyone
    With the help of nafraf I successfully got a firmware dump version  1.00d from my A1300. Were do I upload the file so the porting can begin? It looks the correct size about 8Mb.
    73 Best Regards
    Gerry

    Thanks, I got it.  Firmware version 1.00d

    As expected, the stubs_entry.S file is very similar to a810.  This is an easy port :)
    Code: [Select]
    chdk.a1300$ diff platform/a810/sub/100d/stubs_entry.S  platform/a1300/sub/100d/stubs_entry.S
    7c7
    < //   Canon PowerShot A810
    ---
    > //   Canon PowerShot A1300
    11c11
    < //   PLATFORMID = 12863 (0x323f) // Found @ 0xfffe0040
    ---
    > //   PLATFORMID = 12862 (0x323e) // Found @ 0xfffe0040

    Great I am looking forward to the Port I really like my A1300 my first but not my last Canon.    My A1300 replaces my old C-613 and Z-915 Kodaks. They still work but are really Mediocre cameras compared to that A1300.  I really love the Optical Viewfinder sadly missing on all other small Digital Cameras Canon Please keep the A1300 in production for a long time you have a little winner of a Camera!!

    77 :  Welcome to CHDK Gerry. 

    This is the normal response we usually end up sending to people new to CHDK with a recently released camera :

    link>CHDK FAQ : My camera isn't ported yet

    Normally, it can take a long time before somebody with the right skills and time gets interested in one of the new cameras - usually because they purchase one.   You are really fortunate that nafraf seems to enjoy porting new cameras (that he does not even own) just for the fun of doing so !    Many CHDK users owe him a big "thank you".

    Actually,  there are quite a few Canon P&S cameras with optical viewfinders.

    55 : Just so you know,  CHDK is not affiliated with Canon in any way.  If you have feedback for Canon its probably best you email them directly.

    Hello Everyone
    I have done some playing around with CHDK the very alpha version nafraf sent me and I have taken a few .raw pictures they do not seem any better then ordinary .jpg pictures. I have noticed that the shutter 1/2 press commands to turn on different features does not work. Those features were not working when I was trying the CHDK for A810 firmware 1.00d. I was able to use the bootable card method to the A810 CHDK work on my A1300. I think the A810 & A1300 are very much the same camera electronically the A1300 has 1 feature all other small & budget point & shoot cameras are missing an optical viewfinder. The carrying on A1200 from last year and the current A1300 have Optical Viewfinders and these are really great little affordable $100 or less on a good deal Cameras. Yes the way more costly G series Digital Rangefinder Cameras have an optical viewfinder, but their price approaches the price of the Digital Rebel T*i Series EOS DSLRs. The software osd menus work very well in the Playback mode I have used some of the features. I need to read & learn a lot more to try the motion sensor and time delay features. I hope these findings will give the Porters a better insight.

    Thanks for testing and report.  Are you activating ALT mode to your tests?

    Maybe this helps you: Motion detected was tested with a810, and reported here

    Hello all following this Porting
    I have noticed that 1 function does work on the 1/2 press of the shutter release. Up will turn the Manual Focus On & Off. On the A1300 the "DISP" Button and "Down" Button are the same position on the Control Joystick. I have not had too much of a chance to play with Motion Sense yet maybe in the next few days I will. I hope this will help those Porting this Camera. It took me a couple of months to get the Firmware Dump that is how I am at scripts.
