Processing raw files

CHDK allows the A710IS and SX110SX to generate raw image files. I don't know yet how to process these properly with free software. I'll add notes as I go…


ufraw is a program to read, view and manipulate raw image files.

The files from the A710IS can be converted with ufraw-batch:

ufraw-batch  --out-type=tif --out-depth=16 CRW_5293.CRW

The SX110IS files are not (yet, ufraw-batch 0.15) supported. EDIT 20090919: current cvs does, so will 0.16)


A very recent dcraw (8.97) can process raw SX110IS files

$ dcraw  -v -T -4 CRW_5293.CRW  # convert to 16 bit tiff
