Dear Web Friends, Can you help me? I have a Canon S5IS and I am trying to install CHDK on it. I believe I have got all the info required onto my 4 Gb SD card.
However I am confused over the 3 function button on the G5 at the top edge right hand side of the camera. The centre button function is the camera off action. When the button is rotated towards the right hand side this is the Playback setting. When the button is rotated to the left hand side this allows the camera to record stills or movies.
From the various papers I have read on CHDK you have to start the camera on playback. Does this simply require one to move the multi function to the right? Also when the 4 Gb SD card is placed in the camera should the SD card lock be in the locked position? When taking photos under CHDK is the camera always kept in the playback position?
I am 73 and have read numerous pages giving instruction and advice but the more I read the more I get confused.
If any one out there in the web who has set up a S5IS I would gratefully receive your first hand experience and any other wee tricks I should be aware of. Thanking you in advance, David in Scotland.
