    Remote control of G9 -- how can I get RAW images?

    I have a G9 that I am trying to run on my PC via remote control through the USB.  I tried to use the RC to take RAW images, but does not work, at least as far as I can tell.  I tried using the SDK, which has a RAW image command, but I get an error message.  Canon literature says the G9 does not support RAW image capture through the remote control functions.  Is this true? Is there a work around?

    Hi,

    I just tried with a G10 last week-end.  Also with RAW, also with SDK.
    It didn't work.
    Let us be clear.  When you say "SDK", you mean the Canon Software Development kit? Something like the "PS-ReC SDK v1.1.0X"?
    If yes, that is what I mean too.
    Before starting remote control, the G10 camera was in manual mode, RAW quality.
    I tried to change file file extension from .JPG to .RAW thanks to the prPTP_DEV_PROP_FULLVIEW_FILE_FORMAT function.  But I get the error 0x10200F which means : prRESPONSE_AccessDenied.
    Are we working with the same libraries?
    I'm tired of this SDK.
    -it does not allow RAW shooting
    -it does not allow roemote control of focus distance
    -it does not allow long pause shooting mode. (5 minutes, to shoot car's lights on highways)

    Best regards,
    Jean-Michel.

    Yes. SDK = Canon S/W Dev kit (useless).  G9 was to be part of an experimental device; features fit almost perfectly.  SDK was useless which left only a firmware hack. No luck.  Ended up starting from scratch and had the camera electronics built for an Aptina 9Mpx chip.  Expensive.  No, very, very expensive!  But, got exactly what was needed and experiment was success.  Sorry, no more work on G9 firmware.  Perhaps others have solved the mystery?  Would be nice to know.
    Cheers,
