Is it just me, or the RAW file seemed to have chromatic aberrations? Is this normal?

Settings are:
ISO 80
f5.7
1/160 shutter speed

Any tips? I also noticed this when post processing images and zoomed it at 100%, even  at low ISOs.
Also, how do you use the bracketing function? It would be fun doing real HDR with this. So far, I've only done pseudo-HDRs.

Are there any tips/settings on how to improve sharpness with this baby? I think the Digic 4 processor is capable of DSLR quality photos. I wouldn't mind it being a battery hog if the reward is a tack-sharp photo.

Another feature that would be nice is the dynamic auto-focus feature. Is it possible?

Kudos to CHDK Developers!! \m/

I installed, apparently successfully, the build for my sx130 but can't figure oiut how to enter alt mode.  There is no user defined or direct print button  that I can see.  I'm probably missing something obvious, but I don't know what it would be.  Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

O.K.  I figured out that the face select button puts me in alt mode, but now I can't figure out how to go from review mode into picture mode.  The review/picture button turns the camera back off, and the shutter starts a script.  Help!  I feel so stupid.

Exit <ALT> mode and half press the shutter button to switch from review to shooting mode.

@Pabs,

To me it looks like your IS (stabilization) was On. When you use a tripod, you should switch it Off (in the Canon Menu).

Let me know if I am right.

I'm curious - what difference does image stabilization make if camera is stationary anyway?

It is all relative ..
The earth is rotating, the moon is moving, etc.

Depending on the magnification of your system, IS may kick in.

"I figured out what is causing the crashes, I had 'Quality override' set to 'superfine'. Changing that to 'fine' (or normal, off) avoids the crashes!"
Quote ends here>

I know this is an old post. But I ran into the same problem. Setting it to SF causes a crash when there is a lot of detail. It took me a while figure this.  I just got the camera, which I use for kap, and I set it up as my sx120 was set (superfine on). I check it inside, run 30 or so photos with no problem, then head outside. I put it on the rig. It still works fine (as it is shady and the camera is pointing down). Release the camera and it stops working as soon as it is over a cliff a few feet away (sunny and more detail). Bring it back in, restart. No problem. Over the cliff and it stops. Over and over again. It makes since now. But at the time it just looked like it was randomly crashing. I finally gave up. Put it in the car. Started it up. Worked fine all the way to work.

Convinced it was fixed I take it back out during lunch. Stopped working. Tested it in the car and it worked fine all the way back to work.

Spend an evening working on it. I think the metal bar of the kap rig is causing a short. I put some padding on it. Tested it and it worked fine. (of course I was inside).  We go up to Acadia for the first time in 30 years. I convinced some rangers to let me fly on Sand Beach (banned this time of year). Put the camera on the kite it it fails. Get back in the car and it works fine.

It almost seemed that the camera developed sentient capabilities since it always failed when I was about to send it up in the kite.

I tried it again this morning twice. I brought it inside and it is working fine. I go outside to grab the rig and it fails (sunny day). I go back inside and restart it. Head back outside to the car and it fails. I finally put together what now seems obvious.

Over and over again until I finally figured it was due to detail (or brightness). Try it inside (works). Go outisde (doesn't). Change settings. Try again. Finally got it down to the superfine setting. Then I googled it and found this post. Previous googles were too general.

Now everything it good as I almost always worked from the raw files anyway (no problem with that). And I find it kind of humorous. Thanks to all the developers for doing such great work!
