    I've got a Fuji S7000 which has an optional RAW setting.
    Haven't used it yet as on max resolution it wants 12 to 13Mb of memory.

    What are the advantages of RAW over .jpg's ?

    Thanks

    *if* I understand it correctly the RAW setting is just that it's the
    raw data.
    JPG is a compressed format.

    In a few words, it's lossless format. Uncompressed picture format (instead
    of JPEG's).
    Pretty "heavy" files, useful especially for professionals.
    Look at this as WAV against MP3, or VOB against AVI (DivX).

    Cheers

    RAW data from the sensor, with no in-camera processing (contrast,
    saturation, sharpening, etc.)
