SX230 for CHDK? Suggestions?
May 18, 2012

Hi,

I loaded CHDK on my wife's SD870 and I've enjoyed playing with the features. Now I want to get a CHDK camera of my own.

I think I like the SX230. Anybody try this camera with CHDK, especially for high speed flash photography?

Any other suggestions? I don't particularly need the zoom range of the SX230 (although it would be nice) or the HD video (although that is also nice). I was thinking of maybe going for the S95, S100 (looks like an alpha version is now available), or G12, so as not to limit myself too much in the future. I'm thinking that those cameras probably have more capable hardware than the SX230. I'm the kind of person that might eventually explore all the possibilities of CHDK. It is so hard from reading the porting threads to understand exactly what each model of camera is and isn't capable of.

Thanks for your help.
