CHDK for Canon Powershot A495

4 comments

Last year, I ported CHDK to Canon Powershot A495, which can be found here: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=5570.0
But didn't have much time. If anybody interested to continue my work, you can see and get git repository here: http://gitorious.org/canon-powershot-a495-chdk/canon-powershot-a495-chdk/trees/master

Introduction:
After bought new camera - Canon a495, I'm looking for firmware for this camera model to see anything updated. But unfortunately I didn't found any. After looking hard, I found CHDK which stands for Canon Hack Development Kit for Canon camera. They didn't support a495 camera model, so I began reading porting guide, open arm disassembler and begin porting it using firmware 100d dumped by fvdk.

After half of the port done, I begin dumping myself and realize that my camera has 100f firmware. :-S :S :S :-S.... :|
c.c  :'(
So, I left 100d and begin porting 100f  and release beta version. The 100d version is still on git repository, incomplete and half-way done. I might continue to port this, or not... If I have time to spend.

Firmware download:
Beta 1 - a495-100f-0.9.9-Syahmi-full.zip
Beta 2 - a495-100f-0.9.9-957-full_beta2.zip

Some Photos: 
Some photo is taken from alpha release and some from beta release. All this photo taken during the development.
