My new Canon SX1 arrived today, though I didn't really get much time to play with it. Amazing photo and video quality from the first round of test shots. Loving it. I'll spend the next two weekends taking as many photos and videos as I can to get comfortable with it before the big trip.

I also got CHDK (Canon Hackers Development Kit) installed on it with no issues. Well, except for the fact that I couldn't leave well enough alone and wrote a new installation script. If anybody with a supported Canon camera wants to try preparing a camera card for CHDK installation under OS X, give it a try.

hash bang slash bin slash bash )

The features in CHDK I really want to use are the scriptable and highly configurable time-lapse photography tricks. People are working on ones that adjust aperture and shutter speed, etc, across the day and night so you can take really long time-lapse shots and have the exposure be correct for the time of day. Yet another hacking hobby. Neat stuff!

I should get some sleep now so I can enjoy some daylight with the new camera later.
