Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18K Digital Camera
I do know what that means... :) Most programs don't deal with the information in RAW photos automatically--RAW Photos MUST be "developed" electronically in order to be seen "correctly." The Silkypix software that came with your camera is one software that will allow you to do this. Adobe Lightroom2 is another.
This camera allows you to shoot JPEG or RAW + JPEG
(The mode I recommend--despite it taking up large amounts of memory on your SDHC cards.) The reason I like this mode is you have the JPEG which provides you with instant gratification where you can get a pretty clear picture of what you got in the shot--but the RAW let's you do infinitely more with developing the image.
It's the best of Both worlds.
Of course you can shoot in High Quality JPEG alone if you just want to point and shoot and only make minor corrections to your shots but you lose significant pixel and other electronic data in the JPEG format that is present in RAW.
For more information about RAW format digital photography, visit Digitial Photography School online (free!) and other photographic tutorial sites.
I hope this is helpful!
