IstD problem selecting recorded pixels and RAW/Tiff/jpg

Have had my istD for just over 12 months ...it has suddenly developed a problem in that when switching the mode dial to the arrow (between ISO and White Balance [WB] the recorded pixel display doesn't activate. Iinstead it continues to select White Balance settings. I can't access the recorded pixel settings at all...... maybe a mechanical problem with the mode dial but it actually selects all other options correctly and it does click into place at the arrow .... but doesn't function. Any one else seen this problem ??? Hoping that it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to rectify.

I'm not sure what could cause this, in fact I don't even own the D but..... Approcahing this from a Network Analyst's poiunt of view, it's either hardware or software. The fact that all other modes are OK would indicate that the hardware may be ok. Assuming that it's a software glitch have you tried installing the latest firmware ? It may be worth a try if your problem is a result of some corruption your exisiting fw. It'll cost you nothing to try it anyway.

On my Rebel Canon t2i how do I change the images from RAW to JPEG?


when you have an image from raw, for example 3000 x 4000 pixels, and convert to jpg , it remains 3000 x 4000 pixels, so detail remains the same, but you have make sure compression is 100% 10 or 12 scale when save as export , in options, if you lower compression the pixelating becomes noticeable,

http://www.selteco.com/support/s1065.php
http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/formats...

check settings for save as export for photoshop and lightroom, keep resolution high, if images are resized to smaller 5x7 " sizes for web, maintain resolution ratio from 72 up towards 300 ppi/dpi,

Save as copy, not save for web,

if you were saving to limited web service site, they may decompression or lower file size quality of original image for upload,
if you have lower bandwidth service, your settings for web use may also be low for faster loading, making quality lower,

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.

Those two image files have got to have different prefix letters maybe the same file number but the files are way different as one is shot in a jpg format and the other in a RAW format. Your camera is much more powerful that you think and the features exceed most all point and shoot. What you need to do is change the Recorded Pixels this is on page 80 of the manual I'm going to suggest "L" Large for the best printable quality in a jpg picture.

Note to change the setting you have which is including both RAW and jpg you need to turn off the RAW recording. It's a bit confusing but I'm trying to show your the screen shots with these sequences and that's proving difficult in it's own because it's over multiple pages.
Here is what I've got to show you

The short answer is you need to shut off the RAW recording of an image.

Where can I find a download for D60 raw files? I have taken photographs using the RAW format and now wish to use the raw controls to edit them. How do I find the appropriate download


Nikon have their own free viewer which allows you to convert the files to jpg etc.

If you want a program that can edit D60 Raw files then you could try AbelRawer.

Photoscape has general converter (to Tiff / jpg etc) as well as an editor but I am unsure if it can edit raw files.

All the programs above are freeware.

Adobe photoshop has all the necessary editing power, but is expensive.

Hope that is of help to you.

How do I set my camera to get higher resolution photos?


Hey there kbbate, if you use REC Mode you can choose the Recorded Pixels, and the Quality Level. 6m is the best available setting for the recorded pixels, and the quality level is default set to best, however you should check to ensure it's settings. Note: you cannot select Recorded pixels if the Quality level is set to Raw. Also Raw (3000x2008raw,3000x2000jpeg) would techniquely be the best setting for your purpose. You will just have to do the tweaking on the computer, rather than have the camera sort it out for you. Good Luck!

Best qulity you can get with canon 350d is RAW format, but you cant shoot raw in automatic mode , when you switch camera to manual mode you will see raw option is enabled. if not JPEG (EXIF 2.21) - Fine will capture your images at 8MPX with 3456 x 2304 resolution.

The recorded images by TIFF and RAW cannot be printed


When printing the recorded images directly from the card slot of the printer, the printer which does not support TIFF and RAW cannot print those image files. Print the images with an application software which supports those file formats.
