  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

    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.
