Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

5 Answers

Raw Format Ooops

I have a Canon Eos 350 Digital.
Inadvertently took a bunch of pictures in the RAW setting and now am unable to download them to my iphoto.  
Is there's some kind of specific reader required in order to access these images? 
These are of my best friend's wedding. And if I may say so, some beautiful photos.
Please help.

For one thing the files in the raw are much larger........

Raw (.CR2), JPEG or Raw + JPEG files (separate .CR2 and .JPG files) can be selected in camera. Image file sizes vary, but the Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D's Raw files are about 8 MB each and high quality JPEG files are approximately 3 MB each. In-camera storage is CompactFlash Card Type I or II (no SD card storage) and write speeds are over 3x faster than the 300D. Like the 20D, the Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D features a USB 2.0 port for high speed image downloading. The 300D has a much slower USB 1 port.

You may have to upload to the computer in the raw and later.

You could try purchasing a card reader from any store that sells cameras. Walmart for sure and other similar stores will sell them or even be able to download them for you, just ask. The camera people are always happy to help.

Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns about this and I would be glad to help. thanks

RAW format photos are basically that: RAW image data.  You'd have to edit them/save them in another format using an image editor before you could view them on your iphoto, if I recall correctly. Copy them to your computer first, edit/save them, then you should be able to view with iphoto.

Good reading on the file format.

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!

Eos 600d imports two pictures every time on my computer.


you probably are writing a JPG and RAW (.cr2) file. Look at the manual for the 550D, should be similar. http://static.fixya.com/Manuals/C/Canon/DAF51CA.pdf
page 74 describes this. hit the Q on back of your body and I'm guessing it says "RAW + L", locate that and adjust as appropriate.

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!

We have a Canon EOS 500D. After using it for 18 months we suddenly have a Raw notice and cannot print photos. We dont know where this has come from or to get rid of it. Advise please.


Sounds to me as if someone has set the image "Quality" to RAW files which are more for a professional or advanced amateur use. Page 70 of your owners manual will show you how to set this "Quality" to jpg. I'm going to include a screen shot of this page because it has diagrams and instructions far better then what I can explain just in type.

Also the RAW files you have must me downloaded to your computer, opened in your image software program and converted to jpg file format before you can print, e-mail or any other "normal" thing people do with jpg format.

RAW is just that the actual raw file of the image captured where as the jpg file format is the compressed version with corrections already made in camera. RAW files need correction in post processing.

I suspect you are using the Rebel's direct printing feature which can not process RAW file format, I don't think you want to print RAW as there has been not corrections.

I know this will help.

Here is the diagrams.

CR2 files are created when you shoot RAW files. Your computer cannot read them without a Canon RAW plugin in whatever image processing software you're using.

Your camera can be set to record in JPEG, RAW or JPEG and RAW.

My camera wont allow me to retrieve RAW file images


use the multi card reader copy and paste all files to your picture file. Use the canon software to handle the raw file.

Stops taking pictures for no apparent reason.


My guess is that your camera is current set to take pictures in RAW mode, as opposed to the more less memory eating JPEG format. In Laymen's terms, RAW format pictures require much more memory than JPEG ones do and can dramatically reduce the buffering speed of your camera. The main purpose or advantage of RAW is that it allows one to have more editing capability, after the picture is taken. Not sure how fast you took the 10 pictures, but I would suggest you check the settings and make sure it is set to JPEG format.

Good luck!

Only jpeg on raw+jpeg


This is strange. Is the camera putting the Raw (CR2) files in a different directory somewhere?

Try reading the disk in a reader rather than plugging the camera into the computer, and explore the disk.

If it's really not recording RAWs then I'd call Canon... They're usually very good indeed with photography.

Setting RAW as file format


Make sure that the mode dial is not set to one of the 'Basic Zones', i.e. Auto, Portrait, Landscape, etc. You should be able to select RAW or RAW+L in P, Tv, Av, M, or A-DEP.

Eos 40d downloads


Are you using Photoshop or Photoshop elements? Most other imaging programs will not open raw files.
