I'm new to using CHDK, but not new to digital photography or use of raw so bear with me, and maybe this is a question rather than a feature request, but here goes :
Can we have the output of the CRW or CR2 files be formated exactly like (or close enough) to those actually generated by Canon firmware?
I found out, to my surprise that the CRW and CR2 files generated by CHDK and my A640 cannot be read by bona fide genuine Canon image processors like DPP. I also find out there is missing info in the CHDK generated files (like white balance and EXIF info).
Is there a reason why the CHDK versions of CRW or CR2 are different from versions generated from Canon firmware? Why would you not want the file format to be exactly the same, or as close as possible, so that it appears to every peice of Canon support software to be generated from a Canon camera?
At very least, CHDK should not generate files with the CRW or CR2 extension as this tends to fool people into thinking it is actually in CRW or CR2 format, perhaps the extension should be CHDK.
I don't believe it is a standard if there are TWO incompatible versions. I would think that the Canon format is the de-facto standard.
What important peice of information am I missing here?
