help! create badpixe l bin

After reading the CHDK manual for the past few days I've decided to try it out.  When I try to create a badpixel bin I get an error message of you need to be in REC-mode for this operation.  When I go looking for what the REC-mode is I can't find any information.  Can anyone help me out?  Thanks

Hello & welcome !

When I try to create a badpixel bin I get an error message of you need to be in REC-mode for this operation.  When I go looking for what the REC-mode is I can't find any information.
The camera must be in record mode, "image capturing mode"...
Switch to record mode by half-pressing the shutter button, then try again...

Thanks for the quick response.  I'm not very tech savvy :)  the only way I can access the alt menu is by having my camera (sx10) on the play back mode.  Whenever I switch it to record mode I lose the alt menu.  Am I doing something wrong?  I'm really excited for the new possibilities but I'm also really confused

the only way I can access the alt menu is by having my camera (sx10) on the play back mode.  Whenever I switch it to record mode I lose the alt menu.
- start the camera in playback mode with the PLAY button [>]
- load CHDK with the "Firm update" menut item
- CHDK starts & shows the logo / splash screen
- now half-press the shutter button to switch to record mode, the lens extends...
- press the PRINT button to enter <Alt> mode, then press the MENU button to enter the CHDK menu
- now navigate to the RAW menu, call the "create badpixel" menu item
- this takes around 30 seconds, the display will be blank for some seconds
- now you can enable RAW and also DNG support from the menu.

After you've set up things in the CHDK menu, leave the menu with MENU, then leave <Alt> mode with PRINT...

Thank you so much.  Looks like I have a lot of playing around before I can go and take some pictures:)

Thank you.  Sorry but one more question can you take more than 2 pictures in raw at a time?  I can only manage to take 2 and I can't even zoom.

I can fire away all day on either of my cameras with RAW enabled.  The only difference is the extra time it takes between shots to save the large RAW files to disk
