Canon Hack Development Kit -- Firmware tambahan buat canon camera

Baca baca tentang mahasiswa MIT yang bisa sending balon udara sampai ketinggian 30km dengan modal kurang 150 dolar, disitu dibahas mreka pake kamera canon yang firmware nya dipasang tambahan alias addon, namanya CHDK atau Canon Hack Development Kit 

Waaa... girang gw, kamera bisa dihack liat fitur2nya dari si add-on, kyknya yang kepake buat gw buat skriptingnya, misal ngambil gambar dengan jeda waktu manual, ga cuman dari yang disediain kamera, harusnya sih pas sebelum mudik kmaren, jadi kamera tinggal taro, trus set moto sendiri per sekian detik, hehehe, fitur lainnya, provide raw image buat kamera mur-mer gw, serasa keren kan... *walo ga maniak juga ngoprek foto :p*

Ini fitur-fiturnya :
