I am trying to use .dng with my newly acquired SX30is, the camera has been converted to IR and I want to be able to shoot raw for the options it gives me.
I have set up CHDK to boot and everything seems fine but when I try to create the badpixel.bin things go wrong, I don't know whether I'm missing something or am just too stupid to attempt this, I've read and searched the wiki but am still none the wiser. Each time I try to create the file an error message appears asking for the camera to be put into REC-mode and the wiki states
Switch to record mode (there is a reminder dialog if still in display mode), Select 'Create badpixel.bin' in the RAW menu, press FUNC./SET, and the operation commences, taking approx. 20 to 40 seconds, you will notice the camera takes 2 shots, the blue Print LED will come on briefly during each shot, wait for the process to complete, you will see a display of the number of bad pixels, - that number can be disturbing to some, a figure such as 18,000 or even more is not uncommon. You can check for the file with the File Browser.
How do I switch to record mode? I realise this is a really noob question but it does not matter what I press 'momentarily' or otherwise but the CHDK menus disappear and I have to go back to the beginning.
I've searched for 'record mode' but can find nothing pertinent. I'm being driven nuts by this - even checked Youtube but all the people who have succeeded in this are using older versions of CHDK.
