Default Hack my Canon A590 IS ?

Can I hack my camera to record video directly into my computer hard drive?

I'd ask in the forums here:

http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK

The members there would know if it could be done. The main issue is likely to be USB transfer speeds (as they might be a bottleneck, even if the firmware could be modified to allow it).

Thanks!

Have you heard it done with ANY digital cam? Seems a memcard adapted into a exporting device would accomplish the task (unless it's already made)???

YIKES! That link has tech info enough to make my CPU noggin' start smokin'
