Which is better? Canon PowerShot SX20 IS or Canon SX200 IS?
[...]
Many thanks for the detailed reply, but I had already done some research on the cameras: all you said is correct (even that sx200IS can't zoom while recording videos unless chdk).

My doubts concern closely the CHDK!
Since here -> http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/SX20 it's written <CHDK for the powershot SX20 remains in beta>, and I checked other beta-CHDKed camera's pages not finding that sad word (REMAINS), I wonder: chdk for sx20 will always be beta?
Could anyone explain what are the differences between sx20is-beta-CHDK and a full-CHDK? What features does it miss? I think it could be an interesting thing to know for many people.
Thanks in advance, 7heEnd.

When a new camera is ported, the port stays in BETA phase for some time, dependend on the feedback of the users and also on the time the porter/developer invests...
BETA state will be removed after some weeks/months when the common CHDK features are working & the feedback of testers is positive.
The SX20 1.02b has been included into the official CHDK source code tree (the "trunk") some day's ago, only one feedback/user report (reply #666, still open) until now...  ;)

Error E31 when using PS.FI2 and manually loading CHDK with:
The latest (changeset #902), ready-to-use CHDK binary (standard & full) packages for the
SX20 1.02b (from: http://drop.io/chdkbeta)
Script: Camera play button; menu button; one up; firmware update; message Update firmware version? 1.0.2.0 -> 1.1.0.0; OK

Additional info:
FW version: 1.02b
Reformatted a 8 Gb card (GParted).
One partition, primary, FAT32.
Copied PS.FI2, DISKBOOT.BIN to root folder
Copied folder CHDK
Previous CHDK beta versions for SX20 1.0b (autoboot on a 4Gb FAT12 formatted card) did (auto)load OK.

Same problem as Rambler wrote? (reply #666)

Error E31 when using PS.FI2 and manually loading CHDK
Thx for testing.
Could you test the version without games etc. from this link:
http://drop.io/chdkbeta/asset/sx20-102b-0-9-9-902-beta-without-games-zip
(copy the ps.fi2 file from this zip to the card) ?

Maybe a low-memory issue, maybe acid2000's source code from his test build is different to the last published sources...

@SkyWalker, can you please post your Raw Settings from your display menu. Will be greatly appreciated.
I uploaded a photo (422 KB) of the settings I used for the 2010 Prelude to the Dream race on Wednesday: http://rapidshare.com/files/397866398/Raw_settings_I_used_from_2010_Prelude_to_the_Dream_race.JPG
While I may change several settings for a photo (I use M and Av a lot), I typically change only one setting when switching between RAW/DNG and Canon Fine settings and that is to disable/enable RAW and leave the rest of the RAW Menu settings alone.

I tried both versions. Although exactly the same filesize, I retried, using the file in the link above.
Same result: E31 (followed by the CHDK splash screen for much less than 1 second, and a camera shutdown.

The SX20 does not support manual loading for reasons on page 2/3 of this thread, please use auto load.

I have one issue that is not really that important, but confuses me.
All the photographs that are taken vertically are upside down when I open them in image processing program later. Horizontal pictures are ok.
