    I have the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi EOS 400D camera and when I go to select the quality under menu/quality there is no RAW or RAW-JPG option to select. The highest quality I can select is L High Quality. Is something wrong with my camera? I'm using a San Disk 4 GB flash card. Thanks.

On my 400d, you need to be in one of the manual modes (P, Tv, Av, M or A-DEP) before being able to select RAW.

HTH,

If you have Rebel XTi (400D), press Menu button.

Under the 1st Tab, the first option is "Quality" - select it. You should see 8 options from "fine L" to "Raw". Move selection using the arrow keys, and select RAW.

Why am I no longer able to set my 60D camera to take RAW formatted pcitures


Hi,
In order to select RAW mode, first check if your camera is in either Manual(M)/(A)/(AV)/(Ev) modes. Then go to setting-picture format-RAW/RAW+Basic.
In order to edit the RAW picture, you need to update the RAW version if you are using Adobe Photoshop for editing your pictures.

Thank you!

How do I stop the camera from having a double of every picture taken?


On my D-90, the camera is set by default to store two images of each picture I shoot...raw(NEF) and JPEG Fine.

The raw image contains far more data than the JPEG image and is therefore the best to use when you want to do extensive detailed editing.

The JPEG image is used when you only want to do minor editing before publishing or sharing the picture.

JPEG images deteriorate quickly when subjected to editing while RAW or NEF images can handle many more editing steps before losing quality.

If you're shooting snapshots, you probably don't really care about extensive editing and you can save a lot of space on your memory card by changing your menu settings to store only one image of each shot.


To do that, go to the wrench icon in the menu then scroll to image quality. Click on "image Quality" and you will find multiple lines to set the camera to your preference. Choose the one you want.

What does raw+fine pictures mean?


The raw+fine setting indicates that your camera will take both raw (NEF) and high resolution JPEG pictures with every shot. You can change this to shoot just JPEG or just raw shots using your menu under the little camera icon. Click on image quality and it will give you multiple settings so you can choose only raw or only JPEG. You have three JPEG settings: fine, normal or basic.


I always shoot raw+fine which I think may be the default setting. I use the jpeg pictures for simple and quick editing and I use raw for detailed editing. JPEG pictures deteriorate quickly during editing while raw pictures can handle extensive editing without significant deterioration.

When you shoot raw+fine, it means the camera is actually storing two pictures of the same shot, one in each of the two formats. When you view the pictures in Windows, you can tell the difference between the raw shots and the jpeg shots because the raw shots have a broad black bar across the top and bottom of the picture while the jpeg shots fill the screen.

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!

Camera will not take more than 11 pictures with a 4gb memory card installed. I have formatted the memory card.


Sounds odd.

Check the memory card after format. Format with a flash card reader then do a right click on your mouse to check properties. Do you actually have 4gb available now?

Check to see that you're not shooting in RAW but that shouldn't eat up 4gb of space.

You can also use chkdsk to see if there are bad sectors on your card.

The camera will only let me take about 7 pics before saying the card is full


Try formatting the card, It probably contains files that are not deleted. You format the card in the setup menu. Make sure you have saved all images to the computer before formatting.

Canon g9 camera doesnt work in raw only jpeg


Go to the menu for the camera and look for "SAVE". you should have the choice in which format to save the pictures. Select "RAW" and then exit the menu. The camera should now save in RAW format. Some one or something probably switched the setting (such as reset camera).

Memory chips


you need to adjust down the resolution you are shooting in. Fine JPG vs RAW makes a big difference on how much memory goes into each image. RAW will mean more data in each image, but fewer images will fit.

Nikon SD card for D80 / D200/ D300


You should have no trouble using the SDHC cards. SDHC stands for Secure Digital High Capacity. The images should load directly from camera to computer, without the need for any additional hardware.
