DIY HACK – How to Turn Your Canon into a Super-Camera!

Turn Your Point-and-Shoot into a Super-Camera

Here’s CHDK, an aftermarket firmware you can download to your Canon digital camera and turn it into a super-camera.

Good thing I have 2 Canons, I will have to try this hack out and report back to you on how well the time-lapse feature worked.

The Canon Hacker’s Development Kit, aka CHDK, is a firmware enhancement that supports an impressive array of Canon digital cameras. I emphasize the enhancement aspect of CHDK because the tool is non-permanent and non-destructive, meaning that you load it onto your camera whenever you want to use it; CHDK makes no changes to your camera, and turning it off is simply a matter of restarting your camera. Installing CHDK involves copying a couple of files onto your camera’s memory card; permanently removing it from your camera entails deleting those files. It’s simple and powerful (sort of like hacking your router firmware) but even easier.
