RAW from SX1 -> ACR

Hello.
Does anyone know of a method how to get Adobe Camera Raw to recognize or accept the RAW files
produced by the Canon Powershot SX1 (either the ones produced by the camera or by CHDK, like
the new option to produce DNG files in the camera)?
I know I can open the RAW files with UFRaw and other RAW programs, but I'd like to convert them into
a format that allows me to open the RAW files in Adobe Camera Raw somehow (without converting them to JPGs
of course, which would defeat the whole point of using RAW).

Kind regards and thanks in advance for any suggestions, Niek

Camera Raw normally works with the CHDK RAW's in DNG format, so just enable the DNG support in the CHDK RAW menu (Guidance: Enable DNG support)...

Hi Fe50.

Thx for your response.
The camera produces DNG files with the CHDK software, but I can't open them in Adobe Camera Raw.

Here you can see in a screenshot that in Bridge (CS4), the 'Open in Camera Raw..' option is greyed-out in the menu
when I select one of the DNG files produced by the Canon Powershot SX1 with the beta CHDK firmware:

I've experimented a little more with CHDK on my powershot a720 and the DNG files that it produces with CHDK are accepted without any problems by Adobe Camera Raw.
Only the DNG files produced by my powershot sx1 are not recognized by Adobe Camera Raw.

Same here, the DNG file cannot be read by ACR, looks like the SX1 is different to the SX10, guess its the sensor.

Also, the DNG file produced from the SX1 cannot be read by DPP, not sure if that is true across all models.

DPP does not read DNGs at all, Canon Raw files only.

Oh, OK, didnt know that. I see there is a new version of Adobe Camera Raw out but it still doesn't support the SX1 .

Can anyone suggest a better solution than using DPP to convert to 16bit TIFF and then importing into Photoshop/Lightroom? I cant find anything that will read the RAW file and then produce a DNG from it  :'(

You should try the latest DCRAW version 8.94 (compiled binaries are available from here).

This new version supports the new 12bit CHDK RAWs; it works fine with the SX10 RAW files now - the SX1 is also listed as supported camera...

Try Adobe DNG Converter first and open converted file in ACR.
