In the pre-dawn light this morning I wondered if the combination of clouds and clear sky might make for a beautiful sunrise over Lake Superior. The answer to my question was yes! This video reduces 22 minutes to 22 seconds and uses a CHDK Time Lapse Script on a Canon SX40 camera. The important item about that data is that I am NOT using a super expensive high end camera. My SX40 retails for Amazon at present for $320. However, by having installed CHDK I was able to enable many hidden features on my camera. Canon, like many vendors uses the same software on many of their camera, but often chooses not to makes certain features available. CHDK allows me to access those capabilities!
