HDK firmware hack discussion (4)
Apr 19, 2007

This is a sequel to the old threads discussing the HDK firmware.

The HDK fw is a hacked firmware for DIGIC II cameras. Currently supported cams are A610, A620, A630, A640, A710IS, S3IS and maybe more (see the FAQ for a complete list).

The HDK fw implements new features like RAW, battery indicator, live histogram (RGB/luminance), blinking highlights, DOF calculator, scripts (intervalometer, exposure/focus/... bracketing etc.), text reader, file browser, calendar, games and much more. New features get implemented frequently, so check the timeline for the latest changes, or the FAQ for a complete list.

The HDK firmware does not touch the original firmware of your camera. It is an additional program which gets loaded into the memory of the cam. If you have a problem, just turn your cam off or remove the batteries, and the HDK fw is gone.

For further information, a guide, download links and FAQ see the english WIKI:
