Can Helicon Filter Open CHDK RAW Files?

Unread postby genosmm » 04.03.2008 00:09

Recently installed CHDK on my Canon A570IS and have been very impressed with what CHDK can do. http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

Can Helicon Filter open CHDK RAW files?

Did a forum search but found nothing

Thanks

Here is a link to CHDK http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

I do not know if there are more than one type of CHDK RAW file. Was told that it was 10Bit but the latest DIGIC III processor allows 14-bit analog to digital image processing, as well as capture of 14-bit RAW files. http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/XSI/XSIA.HTM

Dan,

What is the Max file size I can upload?

Also what do you want the photos of?

Gene,

There is no limitation on our ftp server. We need a sample file for tests.

Just FYI...
dcraw (and, therefore, programs based on it) supports CHDK RAW files for a number of cameras.

Dan,

What Photos do you want? Target or Resolution Charts, Color Charts or just an Indoor or Outdoor photo?

Also do you want it taken at the lowest ISO?

As you can tell I do not have a clue as to what is the Best RAW photo to send.

Thanks for you patience!

Several photos under different natural conditions would be fine.

Dan,

Have not heard anything from you? Did you receive the photos and are you able to use them?

Helicon Filter and CHDK Files from Canon A570IS

Unread postby aquinas50 » 13.05.2008 19:15

If you run a free converter program which is linked to from CHDK that converts from the CRW format produced by CHDK to DNG, Helicon Focus can open the resulting file. dcraw 8.86 can process the CHDK files from the A570IS natively, without their being converted to DNG. Other RAW converters such as Silkypix or Rawtherapee can also read the DNG version of A570 files captured using CHDK.
