Using CHDK's USB Remote feature on the SD30 / IXUS i zoom
The USB connector is on the camera's cradle. While in the cradle one cannot switch to Rec mode unless one executes the following script with CHDK's Lua native calls option enabled. After using that one can switch to Rec mode and connect the USB Remote to the cradle. The cradle has a plastic tripod thread, too.
