Do you want to add a live histogram, live flashing overexposure warning and RAW 
as well?  Plus the ability to run custom scripts?  Look here:

I've been trying this with my wife's Canon A620.  It's a non-destructive 
(non-resident) firmware hack that enable some advanced DIGIC II features.  
Because it leaves the original firmware in place, it can't damage the camera 
(although it also means the firmware has to be loaded manually each time you 
turn the camera on).  It's a bit clunky in operation but it does work very 
well.  I'm not sure whether she will want to use RAW (because of the additional 
workflow involved) but the additional exposure tools are definately useful.

Besides, the whole ethos of taking a mass produced camera and unlocking 
advanced features appeals to me!  Hats off to the hackers who have developed 
this.
