Default Additional Firmware for Canon Cameras

Canon Camera owners may be interested in this additional firmware.
It does not invalidate it's warranty as the new firmware resides on the memory card and does not permanently modify the camera in any way.

http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_in_Brief

The current set of extra capabilities fall into six categories:
  • a. Enhanced ways of recording images - you can capture still pictures in RAW format (as well as JPEG), and for video images you can have increased recording time and length (1 hour or 2 GB), and a greatly increased range of compression options.
  • b. Additional data displays on the LCD screen - histogram, battery life indicator, depth of focus, and many more.
  • c. Additional photographic settings that are not available on the camera by itself - longer exposure times (up to 65 seconds), faster shutter speeds (1/25,000 sec, and faster in some cases), automatic bracketing of exposure, etc.
  • d. The ability for the camera to run programs ('scripts', written in a micro-version of the BASIC language) stored on the memory card - these programs allow you to set the camera to perform a sequence of operations under the control of the program. For example, a camera can be programmed to take multiple pictures for focus bracketing, or take a picture when it detects that something in the field of view moves or changes brightness.
  • e. The ability to take a picture, or start a program on the memory card, by sending a signal into the USB port - you can use the USB cable to take a picture remotely.
  • f. The ability to do a number of other more useful (and fun) things, such as act as a mini file browser for the memory card, let you play games on the LCD screen, etc.
