Canon SX240 RAW support?

Recommended Posts

I hope I'm in the right place for this. I have a Canon SX240HS and an SX30, both running CDHK firmware.

 

Both produce superb images but only the SX30 is supported in Affinity Photo so far, so could I request the SX240 be added to the list please?

 

Wonderful program, and I am sure it will go from strength to strength.

I thought the CHDK created Dng Files. Affinity will read those created by my Canon SX 260 HS.

Thanks John,

 

I'd prefer to work with .dng files but  hadn't been able to get CHDK to output in that form, only RAW in .CR2 form (same with my SX30).

 

I just tried again but took out the SD card and read it instead of using the USB connector, and bingo! Up and running now

 

Thanks for spurring me on, and if you have managed to create a bad pixel file I'd be very interested.  The instructions on what sort of surface to photograph for it seem to be a bit vague to me.

Update - I just read up more thoroughly and I think I can safely live without the bad pixel business. I enabled auto selection of dark frame subtraction.

 

I'll shut up now and read more before asking questions :)
