Canon Hack

I was reading over on lifehacker that there is a group of developers working to add functionality to the canon point and shoot line up CHDK. the change is made by putting boot files on your SD card and then booting the camera into a new mode. the changes arn't permanent. support for super high speed, time lapse, more video codecs, battery indicator, and raw mode are just a few of the features this adds. they have an open scripting language (new version of basic) that you can use to write your own scripts (motion sensing, etc..). as a co-owner of an SD1000 i'll be looking into this.

includes motion sensing that is able to capture lightning... very interesting! we'll have to load this up and then find a lightning storm... mmm i think that involves more weather than we usually get here.
