[Question] Let me know about RAW images.

The RAW images are the files recorded as RAW data, that the camera captures but without any processing in the camera.
Generally, the camera captures an image and develop them with image processing, and compress to save as the JPEG format. On the other hand, when taking a picture with RAW, the camera save a DNG file, which is the RAW data that are not yet converted into JPEG. The DNG file is one of the RAW image file formats, which is designed by Adobe systems Inc. You can develop and edit these dng files in a computer with the application software that is compatible with the DNG file format.
For Windows, the Irodio Photo & Video Studio (from Pixela) comes with the package, which allows you to do some simple editing of a DNG file.
For Macintosh, no software comes with the package that you can edit a DNG file. Please use the application software that supports the DNG format.

The RAW mode setting procedures are shown below.

  • 1.Press the [MENU/OK] button in a shooting mode to go to the [Shooting] menu.
  • Press the [MENU/OK] button to go to the [Shooting] menu.

  • 2.With theup downbuttons, choose the [Picture Quality/Size] option, then click with the Right button button.
  • Choose the [Picture Quality/Size].

  • 3.Press the buttons to choose either [RAW (10M)], [RAW3:2 (9M)], or [RAW1:1 (7M)].
  • Choose an item with the up/down arrow buttons.

  • 4.Press [MENU/OK] button to set them. Or press the Left button button and then press the [MENU/OK] button. The setting is configured and the symbol will appear in the screen.

In the RAW mode, a JPEG file associated with a DNG file is recorded at the same time. You can change the picture quality and size of that JPEG file in the Setup menu - [RAW/JPEG Setting].

For the details on the setting change operations, see the following FAQ.

Details on the setting for the JPEG images in RAW mode.
