Camera hack


Recommended Posts

Just discovered a very useful website detailing how to hack the Canon G10, and extend it's capabilities somewhat.... For example the default 15second exposure limit on 'TV' mode can be extended to over 3000seconds, if desired..... All kinds of pretty useful stuff built in there...

The hack software can be booted up on the camera at any stage from the memory card- the default firmware still remains on the camera, and remains unaffected.

Indeed.

Often thought that the core functionality of the G10 was based on simplicity- being able to point and shoot, with quality photos relatively easy to take- important during flying. On the downside, the default perameters were somewhat limiting for other applications- and I didn't want to buy another SLR camera to do my 'other stuff'....

Turns out that you can also get a filter adapter for the G10, just ordered one on Ebay, as well as a basic intervalometer....... some serious experimentation due!!!!
