Thanks a lot to the people who make this forum possible .
I am trying to install the chdk in  the canon sx220hs  wich is a camera almost like the SX230 HS.
I managed to find the version of the camera.
I downloaded the software.
It does happen that in the menu I cannot find the option to update the firmware.
Does anyone know if such option does exist in the  SX 220 ?
I  searched  the manual and I could not find anything about it.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Copy all files from zip file to the SD card, especially ps.fi2 for firm update start.

When you are a Mac user, read this: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ/Mac#Still_Having_Trouble.3F

Switch on the camera with the play button [>], not with ON/OFF key and search for the menu entry "firm update".

Thank you very much.
It worked.
I would love to be able to shoot a picture in Raw.
Do you have any idea how it can be done ?
Thank You very much.

Read the manual: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_User_Manual

The RAW part: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_User_Manual#RAW_Parameters

Enable RAW and DNG. When you enable DNG the first time, CHDK says, you need the file badpixel.bin. Use the menu entry in RAW menu for badpixel.bin creation.

The button for the CHDK <ALT> mode is the play button!
