Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I've got an EOS 30D and when I shoot RAW images along with regular ones I can't find the RAW images. Are they somehow embedded in the other images? I run Windows on a PC and download the images direct from the card. The perplexing thing is that once or twice they have come up as separate files when I downloaded the files to my computer. Any thoughts? Thanks very much, Jon Binzen

I haven't come across that particular problem as of yet. My only questions is; why shoot both RAW and JPEG at the same time? It would be memory consuming. I shoot only RAW unless I'm shooting sporting events.
I typically use Canon's DPP software to download from the camera, so I've not lost an image. I may have to take some test shots using your method to see what happens. I run Vista, so we'll see.

I am shooting in raw i cant download pictures properly or get my pictures printed off the the card


RAW images are what it means. You should convert them into a printable format such as JPEG before you can take prints. I strongly suggest that you shoot in JPEG mode to avoid all these headaches!

When I shoot in Raw + jpeg, no raw filkes show up.


I had the same problem, basically all you need is a RAW converter, the canon software should do and should be provided with the camera and if you havent got that then there is a wide selection of free software on the internet im sure of it just search for it, or a lot easier not to use RAW in the first place...

This is the way SLR users have been taking pictures for half a century. Only more recent models have a Live View capability.

How do I set dpi on canon 50d digital slr to the highest resolutioin?


You'll need to shoot RAW. Then in the conversion from RAW to TIFF or JPEG you can specify the DPI. You can do this in Photoshop or in Digital Photo Professional that probably came with your camera.

DPI and Pixel Resolutions are in two different realms, though somewhat related, they are independant. Your camera produces files at the maximum resolution of 4272 x 2848. At 72 dpi, your print will roughly be 60"x40". At 300 dpi, 14.25"x9.493". At 600dpi, 7.12"x4.747", at 1200dpi 3.56"x2.373". Think of cameras in terms of pixel resolution and printers in terms of dpi. When files are inserted into layouts, the embedded dpi value is used. You just need to change the embedded value to match up with the print size you desire. Obviously, if you want a 120"x80" print at 300dpi... you've got the wrong camera. :) Source(s): This is a good site for those interested in more technical details:

My canon EOS 40D with 18 - 55 IS , when continuous shooting mode is selected, slows down after taking 6 shots. However as per the spec its capable of taking 75 jpegs or 17 RAW images.Please resolve this...


Slow down after taking 6 RAW files ...
A RAW file is Approx. 12.4MB.
The memory usage is approx. 74,4 MB
The internal memory (Buffer) has a size for up to 75 JPEG compressed images.

Which size has the smallest jpg?
JPEG/Small: Approx. 1.2MB (1,936 x 1,288)
The Buffer is approx. 80 MB.

The data are calculated under Canons laboratory conditions.

The maximum Burst (the 17 shoots) means that the camera is writing to the card and the buffer is full. Than the cam will stopping taking pictures.

Which kind of Card do you use?
Check the spec for the card (write speed) and maybe buy a faster card.

When taking photos at night I sometimes get a red haze


It's probably because of the artificial light affecting the white balance, causing the images to appear too 'hot'. Ideally, you could post up some photos so we can see (along with the EXIF data).

If you shoot in RAW you can easily adjust when post processing.

EOS 30D is slow to fire.


Are you sure you aren't in the delay setting in drive mode? This camera has 2 delay settings, one for 2 seconds between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo, and one with 10 seconds delay - often used when you want to be in the photo (e.g. self-portrait or group photo).

If you aren't in the delay mode, then I need to know more about your settings. What shooting mode are you using? What type of photo are you trying to take (portrait, landscape, sports)? Are you shooting indoors, outdoors, bright sunlight, overcast, etc.?

Uploads images to camera grayed out


Are you shooting in JPEG or RAW.

If Jpeg then you can just go into MY COMPUTER, the camera when connected should be recognised as a removable drive, just copy the images directly from your PC to the Card. If you are shooting in RAW then the chances are your digital frame will not recognise the file, convert to JPEG then transfer the same way. There may be a problem with the transfer process via the Canon Drivers, if you have a Card reader it is much easier to transfer the files that way.

Canon 20d raw to pc


Have you ever been able to view the pictures on your pc?
Have you got a card reader that can view the card contents externaly from the camera?
I found the Canon software is quite as happy from a card reader as it is reading from the camera. (I have the next model up, 30D.)
Have you tried upgrading your software, or tried using a third party image program to read the raw files?
Over to you!
