    Very interesting. My camera is supported. I'll have to look into this more later. I don't have a card reader on my computer, and I read you have to create a directory on the sd card - I don't know how to do that through the camera. I'll have to read up on it. Sounds fantastic.

    Edit: Ah crap. It seems you need a card reader. Oh well I'll keep my eyes out for a usb card reader next time I hit that kind of store.

    look at these samples of its use

    http://mighty-hoernsche.de/samples.html

    The bracketing examples are unreal

    Night, are you sure you cant create a directory when its connected to your puter via the usb port?... treat it like any other drive... go to "my computer", Ive not tried it but I think it would work
    Ill give it a try later tonight for ya.

    These are exactly why I always recommend the Cannon Powershots. Some pretty cool features to be unlocked.

    Ooooh... I knew they had these but there's so many features, I'm surprised. The motion detection sounds awesome. Now all I need is a lightning storm and a $1000 camera.

    errr seed, my A590 cost less then 100$ (refurbished)

    I have the chdk program installed, easy process... just follow the directions. Night, the card reader did make it easier. I think you can do it with DOS commands, windows didnt seem to want to work, but I admit I didnt try too hard.

    Sooooooooooooo many menu options and tweeks now omg, i downloaded a manual but its still kinda confusing at best.

    many nice features are immediately obvious, just going to be a little learning curve, evidently im more of an idiot then the complete idiots guide to chdk was written for LOL

    im mostly interested in focal bracketing, remote control, and the motion detection... so that is where i will focus first.

    if anyone has already been there and done that...
