User firmware hacking meets the PowerShot

Over the last couple years, we saw some pretty amazing things when users started hacking up their own firmware options for the popular Linksys WRT54G. Free versions such as DD-WRT offered great bandwidth controls, netflow, radius support and many features that would normally require a much more expensive AP/Router to support.

Now some people are taking that same concept and applying it to the popular Canon PowerShot camera line with CHDK.

It’s kind of interesting how the markets for different devices are artificially restricted.
