Look at this!
this is amazing I did it to my Canon Powershot A720 IS.
It is only available on Canon point and Shoots, and is amazing.
It was so easy I put a few files I downloaded from their website, onto my memory card, i put the memory card in the computer and BANG!
I could take shutter speed as low as 65 seconds and as high as 1/65000 (no joke im serious) I can also do bracketing, motion detection (that can go fast enough to capture lightning in certain cameras, and intervalometer (taking unlimited amount of pictures in specified intervals)

HAVE FUN

not at all. because once you take it off your memory card its as if it was never on it.

yes, it gives you all those features because Canon thought most A series users wouldn't need them. But to call it a DSLR is a stretch. In a DSLR, the price premium mostly is for the larger image sensor (with less dense pixels), so you get cleaner high-ISO images and also higher dynamic range. All the bells & whistles that CHDK provides are done in software.

After going to the web site, I cannot find a specific download for the A720 IS. Which one did you use?

Back in the days of film, SLR's had a unique advantage, being able to see in the viewfinder exactly what you will get.

Now practically all digital point and shoots have that feature via their LCD screen viewfinders.
