which camera supports raw?

  1. Looking for a small and compact point-and-shoot camera that supports
    raw format. Anyone know which compact models support raw?

    http://pebblesfromparadise.com/?p=182 recommends the FujiFilm FinePix
    E900 but you will need software to edit your RAW images. There's
    information on this site about free software that you can use at
    http://pebblesfromparadise.com/?p=189

    Other compacts are also mentioned there, including the Leica Delux 2

    Note however, RAW images are large 18 MB from a FinePix E900, and a 16
    bit Tiff is even larger. If you're really going to use RAW make sure
    you have plenty of disk space!

    Take a close look at the write time and file size to see if it's really
    practical to shoot raw. I think many models have the capability thrown
    in but it's really not practical.

    I just got a LX1, in large part because it had raw, and have not found write
    time with a fast 1 gb card to be an issue...2, 3 seconds, maybe? But then,
    if I'm shooting action, I'll go with my DSLR anyway.

    What I don't like is that you can't turn off that useless JPEG.

    Yeah - that's my only gripe with this camera. Great little unit
    otherwise, innit?

    Stephen - the LX-1 also has this humongous RAW file size. I simply
    convert it to DNG and then save it - that brings it down to 8MB or so
    per file.
