Canon Powershot Cameras

March 1, 2007

In the Graphic Communication Technologies class, students us a class set of digital cameras.  We have 10 Canon Powershot A510/A520/A530/A560 cameras.  This is a decent budget friendly point-and-shoot camera series.  Someone discovered the cameras’ firmware is hiding some of the better features reserved for higher-ticket cameras.  But not anymore..

Currently, the cameras already do everything my students need them for.  The feature of CHDK hacking that interests me is the Splash Screen Branding.  I would like to change the start-up screen on the cameras to show that it belongs to the school.
