Canon Hackers Developement Kit (CHDK) New AP Tool For Me


Just been checking out the Canon Hackers Developement Kit (CHDK) firmware that some new cameras can use and it seems to be a powerful new tool for Aerial Photography.
I was just about to build a circuit that will enable my camera to take continuos pictures at an interval of around 1 frame every 1 second to 3 second range but now I can use software to acheive this function.

Yea it works awesome, I use it on my A640. I just hit the shutter once and go flying around. I land with a few hundred picture.

Yes I have been using it for a couple of years now, its incredibly flexible, The Kite Aerial Photography guys have come up with some amazing scripts that bracket shots and step zoom as well. Have a look in the KAP forum - Camera Control Systems for many threads on CHDK

Cheers
