Wow! Very cool!

 :) Ok... I own a somewhat decent camera: Canon PowerShot SX10 IS

I  ran across this webpage earlier and thought... wow this will save me going out and getting a new camera! http://www.flickr.com/groups/canon_sx10/discuss/72157615709630138/

I currently use Photomatrix, Lightroom and Artizen along with Photoshop as my primary tools to create HDR images for my 3D StudioMax renderings.

So... first off thank you for a wonderful set of tool! :)

I have installed the tools for my camera and setup to boot on start along with the installing and running the badpixel.lua script... all thanks to the forums!

Couple questions:

How and what are the best practice for setting up autobracketing? It seems I can get more exposures than the normal (3) with the camera? How is this done?

Also, my RAW images still do not translate to Photoshop at all even after running the script.. when importing to Photomatriz it looks like a starfield. Am I missing something?

Also, is there a special technique to use an 8gb SD card?


Again thank you! Very great find... made my day today!! Thank you

Hello & welcome, vibes35 !

How and what are the best practice for setting up autobracketing? It seems I can get more exposures than the normal (3) with the camera? How is this done?
Set up bracketing in continuous mode in CHDK, use the camera's continuous mode or the custom timer mode...

Which script ?

Nothing special ;)
Manual start (with "Firmware update..." from the Canon menu) is supported from all card sizes; the autostart loading mechanism needs (as on all other CHDK-driven cameras) a partitioned SD card, with a FAT12/FAT16 formated, CHDK-bootable partition for the start code.

Awesome! Thanks...

Autobracketing working great!

The RAW image script I am using (sorry for leaving it so abstract before) is the badpixel script.

SD card info you gave worked great!

Problem I have now is spending more time on the forum than actual shooting :)

Thanks again!
