    Mine was set to auto, but I have raw photos turned off.  Do I need to turn it on?

    It's a shame because the pictures would look beautiful without all that blue glow around the picture.

    No, the DF subtraction setting is a general setting, also for JPEG images.
    When you set DFS to "On" & capture an image with e.g. 10s exposure time - does DF subtraction work (i.e. 10s for the shoot + 10s with the "Busy" message on the screen) ?

    I understand your question and I will try that later tonight..

    Ok, I just tried it.  Turned DFS to "ON" and tried 12.7sec, 20s, and 32s...it works perfect!!!  I'm happy now!  Looks like the auto setting doesn't work right so you just have to turn it to on.

    I have used 64 sec exposures a lot and have been pretty happy.  At 128 sec it varies, I have not used it that much but it appears to be much better when it is cool.

    Hello,
    I've made my SD card bootable with gparted (it is a 2GB FAT 16 filesystem), copied the CHDK/ directory and DISKBOOT.BIN to the root of the SD card. However my SX120IS doesn't boot to CHDK at all. I tried also locking the card, but it still a no-no. The only difference is the 'card locked' message when the foto boots.
    The firmware version is 1.00B.
    Any ideas how to debug why is it not loading?

    P.S. I'm trying the v912 from this topic: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,5026.0.html

    [EDIT]
    I used CardTricks and now CHDK is running :) Maybe I've failed with something when tried to manually install it...
    However it is kinda buggy (as expected):
    - the CHDK OSD is layed over the default camera OSD but I can use the <DISPLAY> button to remove the default OSD
    - when I press half-shutter to focus, the CHDK OSD disappears, leaving the default OSD only and that OSD is blinking
    - starting the camera requires longer press of the power/play button
    - sometimes when I'm in the menu, a rectangular part of it in the upper right part of the screen disappears (goes completely transparent?)
    - sometimes icons in the menu disappear
    - more menu glitches - sometimes the whole menu disappears, but reappears for a second after any key has been hit

    It's seems your card is not realy bootable.

    Try some of this Methods. Copy the CHDK files to the card. Lock the card and start the camera.

    I'm trying the "sx120is-100b-0.9.9-912-full.zip" firmware, all I've tested seems working perfectly.
    The most usefull thing is the battery level indicator, the camera goes off at 2180 mV and fresh batteries are about 2700 mV. Now the CHDK charge indicator shows a real value instead of the canon's one wich is always blinking.

    Any decent bracketing scripts? I've made my own, but I'm not very satisfied with it. You can find it here: http://pastebin.com/TUGWstWA
    It seems I can't count right the number of wheel "turns" to take from 0 EV to -2 EV then back to 0, to +2 and back to 0 (to reset the setting). I've hit the exact settings between 7-9 "turns" and every time it seems to takes different number of turns. Also for the delay after shooting - I've tried from 4 seconds to 1 second and it seems there is no difference? If there is a 2-second review after shooting does it matters for the script?

    I cant get it to work. I have Firmware 100B and either I get a "card locked" message or the camera does not start up.
    Using sx120is-100b-0.9.9-912-full.zip and card tricks. First step format, second step make card bootable, then extract using CHDK-Card from zip. Is there anything different that I need to do for this installation to work?
