Just saw this in digg, interesting how you can make the camera able to shoot RAW, adjust what is on screen, etc. Certainly something worth playing around with if you have a canon P+S.

My only concern would be if this voids the warranty

They could never prove you used it, since it loads only if you put in a specially-prepared SD card. Remove the special SD card and put in a regular one, and the original camera firmware is back in control as if nothing happened.

The CHDK hack rocks... I only wish they supported my S80. :(

There several other threads about it on SB.

Would there be an issue with waiting a long time for the P & S camera to write the RAw file to the memory card? I had a Olympus C7070 and when I used its RAW setting it took ages to write each shot.
