CHDK port for Canon SX30 IS

I understand that currently there is no support for the SX30 IS, however there is support for the SX20 IS. I own an SX30 IS and was wondering what I could do to help expedite the port to this camera? I was also wondering if the current firmware hack for the SX20 IS could be easily modified to work with the SX30 IS? If there is a developer I could talk with about this particular model please reply.

SX30 1.00p

I recently tried using CHDK on my recently purchased SX30-IS, and used the build for the firmware (1.00p) on a 4 gig SanDisk Ultra card, I used "sdminste.exe" as sugested to create 2 partitions on the SD card and to make te card bootable, a 2 MB FAT16 partition that I installed CHDK to, and made it the first partition, and the rest a FAT32 partition for the camera to store the files it creats on. This did not seem to be working, and I discover what possibly may be some glitches in CHDK for my camera.

I found one of my older 2 Gig SD card, and using "sdminste.exe" again, formatted the card all FAT16, made it bootable, and installed CHDK on t for my camera, it appeared to work better (I used the same build as I had on my 4 Gig card, the FULL build), untill I attempted to change the Shutter speed and apature using the thumb scroll/toggle wheel, this shut the camera down. I powered the camera back up, and attempted to see what was the problem, selecting up/down/left/right does not appear to cause this problem, but scrolling, or rotating the wheel causes the camera to shut down.

Can anyone help me with this issue?

  • Since the 1.00p port ist in a very early development stage there may be some bugs; i suggest to follow the SX30 thread in the forum & to report issues there. Fe50 05:22, August 9, 2011 (UTC)
  • The latest version (1293) from the autobuild server should fix the control wheel problem with firmware 1.00p. I have fixed some incorrect addresses in the code. Philmoz 12:57, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
