Reviews and Specifications Edit

  • The S5 lacks an intervalometer, even though the S1, S2, and S3 have one. The closest thing it has natively is a "custom timer" -- a timer that will take multiple photos. Use a CHDK intervalometer script to add this feature.
  • RAW samples have been submitted to rawsamples.ch and are also available for direct download [1].


Specifications Edit

Native Edit

  • Aperture: F2.7 to F8.0
  • Shutter speed: 15 to 1/3200
  • The manual states that a single continuous video can be up to 4 GB or 1 hour, whichever comes first.

Added by CHDK Edit

  • f2.7 to f11 (anything above f11 reported not to work).
  • extra long exposures with up to ~2000 s


For Developers Edit

The ver.req file works as well in this model.

The "NT" in the upper block refers to "NTSC"

Pressing DISP twice more (still holding SET) returns this additional block:

The upper block and additional text are the same as with 1.01A, though. (Timestamp changes, of course.)

Another camera with 1.01B (American-bought) returned a timestamp of Jun 14 2007 20:11:19. Note that this is the same timestamp as the European one below.
