A color matrix is embedded in the DNG. asm1989 included the current one since beta1.3. See his post in this same thread:

New Version 1.3
-Updated color matrix for DNG, now color looks better
-Compiled with latest chdk 1023

This is the one I use using dng4ps2:
Code: [Select]
    #define CAM_COLORMATRIX1                          \
1026340, 1000000, -412992, 1000000, -158934, 1000000, \
-59169, 1000000, 421214, 1000000, 23459, 1000000,     \
28948, 1000000, 10693, 1000000, 127339,  1000000

Ok Latest version with latest trunk 1211 - version 1.9


hello,

I would like to help with porting of the CHDK to the  PowerShot SX210 IS. I tested trunk 1211 - version 1.9. It is working but there are a view things that need improvement. For example the blinking menu. I have programming experience with C/C++. Maybe we can work together, to ensure that it becomes part of the stable release. This seems a nice challenge and convenient for personal use.

I'm Curious what you think of my proposal.

Greetings Roy

It would be great if SX210IS get an official CHDK port. In this moment both its predecessor SX200IS and its successor SX220HS are supported.
So, I'm afraid that unless it gets some developer attention soon, it won't never be ported. (I wish I'm wrong).
Now, I understand that developers give away their free time, and maybe they can't do it anymore or simply they don't want to do. Maybe even switched to another camera, lost interest or whatever.

Hi there.

I don't get this work on my sx210is. Firmware(GM1.00C)
I downloaded this version "CHDK1211-sx210is-ASM1989-RCv1.9.zip"

But somehow it's not running.
I copied the content to my sdcard as instructed in the readme file. But nothing happens.
I don't have the Menu Option "Firmwareupdate" either...

Any Idea, what i'm doing wrong? :blink:

thxs :)

Hello & welcome, sublist !

I don't have the Menu Option "Firmwareupdate" either...
Expand all files to the root of your SD card, start your camera in playback mode with the [>] button, then enter the Canon menu...

On a Mac make sure you've removed the quarantine flags, read more here:

good it works mike2k8,

regarding puting the sx210 source into the trunk will be possible, since it has been working for several months and  hundreds of people are using it, but I dont have much time now to do the stuff

this is the source pack http://www.4shared.com/file/B7b68InL/sx210fortrunk.html

since it uses a variant of propset 3 y named it propset5,

reyalp is all this what is needed to create the diff?

since it uses a variant of propset 3 y named it propset5,


That's not the standard way to handle a new propset.
The propsetN.h file can't have 'if defined(CAMERA_xxx)' sections since it needs to be processed by a script to generate the propsetN.lua file.

Also double check that it isn't a match to propset4.

If it's indeed a new propset variant then you need to make sure the propset5.h file only contains the values for propset5 (don't mix in other sets based on camera).
Then update platform.h to include the new propsetN.h file based on the CAM_PROPSET setting.
Next update CHDK/Makefile to include building of the new propsetN.lua file.
Finally update CHDK/LUALIB/propcase.lua to load the new propsetN.lua file.

Phil.


Is there something I can do to help with this? Note that I don't know a thing about C programming, though.

If I understand correctly, by modifying the asm1989 source per the philmoz comments, the source could be ready for inclusion in trunk, couldn't it?
So, the questions are 2:

What is needed to do to check if propset4 matchs? It's probably beyond my knowledge, I suppose that it's not simply a matter of replacing propset5 with propset4 from another working port and see if it works, isn't it?

In case this is in fact a new propset (not that I know exactly what a propset is, anyway), what is needed is cleaning up propset5.h by removing 'if defined(CAMERA_xxx)' and non applicable sections. Is this correct?

Thank you very much. (And sorry if I'm doing stupid questions).

Hi,
I've just found this thread after purchasing the camera, but am confused as to how we actually install the software!

After browsing on some of the Flickr groups some people have suggested we have to use Cardtricks, where as in the readme of the software download it just says about performing the software update!

Could someone clarify exactly what needs to be done? I've looked around for instructions but cannot seem to find any :(.

Thank you I now have it on my card, that is VERY nifty how the software can overwrite the card Lock, very impressed!

I just have one last question, i see that you can now shoot in RAW mode (my main priority), how do i set this up? Looked through the menus and can't seem to find what I'm looking for!

Edit, found it in the manual - coming up as "Direct Print button" which i can assume is the icon above the Record button!
