User reports

Following download instructions, I "installed" Allbest's latest version available(but not experimental) for my camera.

I am investigating all features now ;-)

Great documentation is AllBest CHDK firmware usage, and Brief CHDK description .

Firmware Update 1.00d -> 1.01a

In the german forum (Link) an Ixus 700 user has reported that he has successfully updated his camera from firmware version 1.00d (Canon 1.0.0.0) to version 1.01a (Canon 1.0.1.0), the Canon firmware update is available from here: http://web.canon.jp/imaging/ixus700/frm-e.html

Warning Beware: such a REAL firmware update is permanent, you can't go back to the previous version and it CAN DAMAGE your camera !
