went to an interesting talk from a guy who restores old photographs, and he mentioned about saving files in a .raw format, and that every camera does that before it converts to a .jpeg or whatever other extention you use, but how do you get it to just save as a .raw?


and it was great the way he was able to revitalise damaged photos

It would have the option if it did, have a look through the menus, if it doesn't have the option and probably doesn't

look in your cameras menu, it will have the option to save in raw or jpeg if it does it.
raw has more information in the image, jpeg compresses and averages the picture.
you will however get less images on the memory card as the files are larger.

And don't forget that every time you open JPEGs with something like Photoshop and then close them, it compresses it as it closes and it keeps losing quality eek

Only if you save them, it doesn't modify them otherwise eek
