If you're into photography, just go read this MeFi entry about the CHDK firmware for Canon cameras. The CHDK firmware for many lower end Canon point-and-shoots has a raw mode, adds various histogram features, but also has a scripting setup of some sort to do automatic bracketing for infinite depth of field or high dynamic range shooting, and a time lapse mode.

Wow! I've been waiting for this!

I just checked the KAP Discussion Board and discovered that it moved on me. I was using an RSS reader and thought it odd that the board was so inactive! They've been actively exploring CHDK for a few months already including James Gentles who already has worked up an interface between an RC servo connector and USB for RC control of a CHDK-enabled camera shutter.

I think it's time to put all my Olympus gear on eBay!
