Canon G11 + CHDK = ???

Hi everyone,

I knew sometime ago that CHDK was in development for the G11, but I was not eager to test it since I got the impression that it provided features that was not in cheaper Canon P&S cameras while the G11 already had these features.

But when I saw this link: http://canong11.amirw.net/chdk-for-canon-g11-is-out-first-impressions/ I got the courage to try it with my G11, so I got myself a 4GB SD card and installed CHDK (which BTW was very straight forward if you got past the thousand links and FAQs).

Now we come to the point, what gains do you get from using CHDK with your G11? Has anyone else tried it? I mainly wanted to try the optical zoom in video mode, it worked, but the motor noise was very loud.

What else could I gain from CHDK + G11?
