To toggle RAW image quality on or o for a single shot, assign RAW
to the Fn button (P 50). If a JPEG option is currently selected for im-
age quality, pressing the Fn button temporarily selects the equivalent
JPEG+RAW option. If a JPEG+RAW option is currently selected, pressing
the Fn button temporarily selects the equivalent JPEG option, while if
RAW is selected, pressing the Fn button temporarily selects FINE. Taking a picture or pressing the Fn
button again restores the previous setting.
RRAW images record raw, unprocessed data from the camera image sensor. JPEG copies of RAW images can
be created using the j RAW CONVERSION option in the playback menu, or RAW images can be viewed on
a computer using the RAW File Converter application that is installed with the software on the supplied CD
(P 90, 92).
RSensitivities of L (100), H (12800), and H (25600) are not available when RAW image quality is on (P 48).
RControl lock (P 4) disables the RAW button. To enable the RAW button, press MENU/OK until the X icon clears
from the display.
