Powershot/IXUS users - interesting software

Postby alliecat » Tue 09 Dec, 2008 8:50 am

Hi All,

I came across some interesting software - the Canon Hack Development Kit. It is a firmware add-on (loaded from the SD card) that implements a bunch of extra feature for Canon Powershot and Ixus cameras. Some of the most interesting features for me are:
  • RAW image recording
  • Automatic exposure bracketing
  • On-screen exposure information, including under- and over-exposed areas
  • Triggering shots with motion detection.
  • ... heaps more!

I haven't tried it out yet (hopefully tonight) but it certainly appears to have potential to increase the flexibility and usefulness of my camera. I'll report back when I've had a chance to have a good play with it.

Cheers,
Alliecat
