CHDK Compatible Powershot A series cameras

    A Series

The A series has the highest number of supported cameras. They generally aren’t all that fashionable, but the 1000 series and above all look pretty slick and are thin. These can make for good, reliable chdk installs in situations where you the camera is in a degree of danger. The lower number / earlier cameras are also more likely to run off of AA batteries. That makes it easier to get a good deal on a used one without the charger and it also means that there are easier battery replacement options. One other good aspect is that bigger cameras can be easier to disassemble in case you are looking to create a new enclosure or tap into the wiring for the buttons.

As with every camera purchase, you’ll need to make sure that you end up with an appropriate memory card (or two), a battery, and charger. If you buy new this is less of a concern, but a lot of these cameras are only really available on the used market so keep an eye out for what accessories are bundled with the camera.
