Canon ELPH 300 HS / IXUS 220 HS – CHDK Alpha available

The devs have been hard at work the last couple of weeks and an alpha version of CHDK for the Canon ELPH 300 HS and Canon IXUS 220 HS is now available on the CHDK forums.

For the latest as of right now, go to this post in the porting thread.

At the moment there are 2 versions for different firmware versions of the camera. You can check which you will need by using this software, along with a jpg you have taken with the camera.

If you are able and willing to test out this alpha build, please post your feedback on the CHDK forums to assist those who are developing. Also keep checking for new builds!

Check out my previous post for details on CHDK and its benefits.

Update: The builds are coming quick, this one is now the latest. Always check the thread for newer builds

    I can’t find any information about changes in CHDK for Ixus220.

    What with manual mode, like extended range of shutter speeds, shutter priority, 1/1000s, EV comp, auto focus and others?

      Hi Ali,

      The CHDK version is still being worked on. Until it is complete it is difficult to determine which features will be available for the IXUS 220 HS / ELPH 300 HS. It should support all of those functions you mentioned though as they are fairly basic. If you want to test it out all you need is a spare SD card and a little bit of time. The developers would really appreciate any feedback you can give on the current state of the build.
