Few years ago, I have found myself very irritated with “hacking community”, I got a couple of computers down and I think I am still hosting some files I would not want to! But in this chaos, there is amazing stuff growing like the Canon Hack Development Kit.

Hack your Personal Camera

I have tried to understand all that yesterday. I would say you need to be confident with your computer and not afraid of installing several new little softwares. Based on my personal experience I am really satisfied and all the steps are described in a very easy way. After some research on my camera : Ixus 105 Canon, I have decided to go to SDM. I will not create a new tutorial as it is done on Stereo Data Maker.

Personal Camera : nice color !

The mistakes I have done during the operation

  1. How to lock or unlock the SD card ! The most funny one, I was looking for some options on the computer but it is physical, to lock or unlock your SD card, you have a small plastic thing on your SD card side.
  2. When you execute sdminste.exe, the file “DISKBOOT.BIN” has to be in the same folder unless you will not see the button INSTALL
  3. Help yourself with ACID

Here I am, that’s it for today ! By the way, you can see it is ready to time-lapse, sounds good uh ?
