  • No question, and no doubt why the Ixus 300 failed commercially - as I wrote, I picked it up on a clearance to see how I like rear screen shooting, about C$110. As it proved out, I can't be a fan ...
  • Thanks for the comment and observations - SOOC post is really just to celebrate completion of CHDK for the Ixus 300 - I'm bothered by reflection / glare and instability holding rear screens so ...
  • Thanks, that's a good cautionary assessment of the "SDO" - my one question about the Ixus 300 might be that it was released as a kind of S90 for dummies at about $50 less, and might share some ...
  • At Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto, trying out the Ixus 300 / SD4000 with the newly completed CHDK for it:  ISO 80 reduces the native 125, and SuperFine JPEG compression. This is SOOC.  I was ...
  • Both my bridge cameras have native MF, and for the older S5is the CHDK zoom-rocker control was a major breakthrough in usability, since it doesn't have control wheel fine adjustment. I never used ...
  • You take the deals as you find them in your country, for the phone and features you want / need. Here in Canada the going contract rate for a Bell Canada 2yr with S8 ( discount currency by 25% for ...
  • The best camera is always in the hands of the best photographer, but my big shock owning the S5 and then buying a "sunny day zoomer" in the SX10 (which can only blush before the ultimate sunny day ...
  • Thanks, I was assuming one separate install procedure for each camera and then using those files for each one's additional cards. I'll have to try this. (I do have some camera-specific settings, ...
  • You can just disable auto updating - I've copied this from a site Gadgets360: (1) Open Google Play Store. (2) Touch the hamburger icon in the top-left, swipe up and choose Settings .
  • I haven't read of this before, but could well be known to others. For some years I've been using CHDK with two or three 4gb cards for each camera: unzipping a freshly downloaded version on my PC ...
  • Nice shots - interesting the phone beat your camera on that secont shot.   I like that one for the complicated hard rectangular elements and then the soft reflection, inside the dark frame.  ...
  • Thanks, that would be very good news - as I wrote I'm currently stuck on an older v1.1.0 that was tweaked offline and never put into the development channels - so it works better on the SD4000 but ...
  • Google turned up this interesting iFixit site, with a lens error technique for massaging a lens back into position - indicates there should be an onscreen error message so not sure if it applies ...
  • I have an SX10 that works well. As you'll know, pressing in shooting mode the lens should smoothly extend about 1/2" out to 28mm equiv line and stop - your video show it jittering at the start. To ...
  • My personal doesn't count for much, but by coincidence got my first compact Canon Ixus 300 (a baby S90) as a "carry around" a few months before my first (hilarious specs) smartphone LG Optimus Net ...
  • I'm not in the "flagship" league, but always recommend this comparison site - the reviews and the side-by-side specs are reasonably thorough: http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=8466 You ...
  • Not very precise about HDR stacking or focus stacking and how many exposures you'd want. I don't use Android devices for post-processing much, but noticed the developer of the very good Open Camera ...
  • My big CHDK trouble was with the rear screen that seems unconventional somehow and doesn't work for CHDK zebra, grids, etc. I pretty much agree about the IQ of this camera versus phones, though I ...
  • For Android there is a little free app called "Set Orientation" (dev Eyes-Free Project) in the Play Store - it will let you choose from and set a variety of choices and then disable it when not ...
  • I still have the camera, and share your high opinion of it - I think of it as my S90 for dummies - but have to say my phone has pretty well replaced it as carry around. Also have a bit of a tale to ...
