Live video feed directly to my laptop (HD/slow-mo) for some important non-profit video projects.
If what you mean is stream directly to your laptop, I don't think any CHDK supported camera will do this. You can use the CHDK PTP extension to stream the view that appears on the camera display to over USB to a PC, but it won't be HD and it definitely won't be the kind of quality you'd want for video production.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

HELP--problem checking firmware vers.

Ok, I'm not sure what to do here, I just recently got this sx260HS, and did what it said here: chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_for_Dummies

I used a 2GB card, put in two files (renaming the ext) with those instructed, but all I get when pressing those buttons is a blue screen on the cam with an animated time counter like 00:00:32 counting up.
 :blink:
Tried everything it said, tried it in different modes (no "play" mode per-se, just used the > button)--but that's all I get. Anyone know how to get the firware info to show up on this thing??

It is easier to get firmware version using ACID

You probably also want to read throught this - the info in CHDK for Dummies is kind of out-of-date.

Both links were helpful, thanks. :) But it says the fw vers is "101a", no decimal. I assume that's the software's way of saying 1.01a?
