Now for something really cool

Now for something really cool28. August 2007, 15:19

Unleashing the full power of your mp3-Players and routers by flashing an OSS Firmware is probably old news for you, but how about freeing you camera?

CHDK is an extended firmware for Canon cameras using the DigicII processor, like my A620 :)

the main feature highlights are

  • saving the Photos in RAW mode
  • a battery inicator

but there is also

  • Live histogram
  • Zebra mode (blinking highlights and shadows)
  • DOF-calculator
  • Scripts execution
  • File browser
  • Text reader
  • Calendar
  • Some games

I will post more once I can take a break from learning for the exams with a clear concience.

Sounds great... I have also A620 so those upgrades are great.
