Canon helps you with a Super Camera

Don’t you wish your humble point-and-shoot digital camera will be able to turn into a super camera at night when you’re asleep? I don’t mean having it wear red suspenders on the outside, but rather benefitting from features such as RAW shooting mode, live RGB histograms, motion-detection, time-lapse, and even games without forking out thousands on a dSLR. The Canon Hacker’s Development Kit, aka CHDK, does exactly that. It is a firmware enhancement which supports a vast array of Canon digital cameras. This is a non-permanent and non-destructive tool, since it can be loaded whenever you want to use it, while turning it off is a snap as all you need to do is restart your camera. Features include :-

  • Enhanced image capture
  • Additional on-screen information
  • Additional photographic settings
  • Support for small programs/scripts
