I don't know if these cameras support CHDK, but they're very cheap and come with a card:

For people living in the Netherlands.
Look at http://www.vd.nl/multimedia/foto-en-videocamera.html they are selling the Canon Ixus 105 for € 89.99.
If you have airmiles you get an extra 20% discount. And since you are buying 2 the amount is over € 100, so shipping is free within the Netherlands.

Voor mensen uit Nederland.

Kijk op http://www.vd.nl/multimedia/foto-en-videocamera.html ze verkopen de Canon Ixus 105 voor € 89.99.
Als u airmiles heeft kunt u 20% extra korting krijgen. En aangezien u er 2 koopt is het bedrag over de € 100, dus zijn er geen verzendkosten binnen Nederland.
