Soft? Hard? RAW?

Hello Beanster Blog readers!

I was a bit bored this afternoon so I decided to play around with my very old (circa 2005) Canon IXUS50 camera.


I installed CHDK and am now playing around with, what seems like, endless lists of features and settings… My faves so far are:

I can play Reversi (Othello) …

Use an egg timer…

And also my low end camera shoots RAW.


This definitely breathes new life to my aging camera… now if only I remember to charge and bring it along! That being said…

very good job CHDK team.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
