Looking for a sub-$200 Powershot with wide-angle adapter
Mar 24, 2013

I'm thinking about buying a cheap Powershot to use for time lapse with CHDK. Cheap, because I plan to leave it alone for a day or two doing its thing, and I don't want to be crying when someone steals it. I can't seem to find any model that is both cheap and also has a decent wide-angle adapter available except the SX20 (with this adapter). The other option I can see is trying something like the ELPH 110 HS with its 24-mm equivalent lens, which would be less useful but maybe okay.

Any suggestions for other models or avenues to search? A bonus would be a model that accepts external power, so I don't have to solder up a power adapter.
