From Revision3:
Your Canon's PowerShot isn't cutting the mustard? You want to upgrade to a more expensive camera? Looking for RAW, ISO modes, motion sensing, shutter speed selections and more?

STOP!

Before you spend any money on a new camera, try upgrading the firmware on your PowerShot using the CHDK firmware.

This open source project brings your camera a host of new options including increased shutter speed selections, ISO modes, RAW write modes, live histograms, and video record options.

Plus with the addition of scripts functions like motion sensitive photography or HDR time lapse can be performed.
