CHDK Camera Hack explained...

Maybe it's been mentioned already, but those of you with Canon point-n-shoots might enjoy this....CHDK explained...

"With the help of a free, open source project called CHDK, you can get features like RAW shooting mode, live RGB histograms, motion-detection, time-lapse, and even games on your existing camera."

This runs off the SD card so no need to worry about trashing the factory settings. Format the card and you're back to "normal". Be sure to read the comments section below the article above for more insight, clarification, and notes.

I'm shooting with a 350xt primarily, but I'm going to have a play with our A620. It looks like fun
