Take a look at the extended functionality it offers. I believe that the main line camera companies could provide this set of capabilities also.
  • Override Camera parameters - Exposures from 2048s to 1/60,000s with flash sync. Full manual or priority control over exposure, aperture, ISO and focus.
  • Bracketing - Bracketing is supported for exposure, aperture, ISO, and even focus.
  • Motion detection - Trigger exposure in response to motion, fast enough to catch lightning.
  • DOF Calculator - Display detailed DOF information on the screen.

I read about this hack along with others for other cameras long ago. What Id like to know is why it isnt distributed by the manufacturer but rather by hackers. It doesnt hurt the camera in any way, even if you installed it full time it always loads from the card. And many of the features that become available are well worth the time it takes to load it. Its like that with a lot of computer pieces. They are capable of A to Z but are only offered with features A to M. The rest you have to discover for yourself or ones more knowledgeable.
