5D quality settings
9 months ago

I have what I assume is an easy question for folks who know the original 5D camera well. I do not own it, and have no experience with it whatever. But my brother (a new grandpa! recently bought a used one & is having some trouble adjusting the settings. I tried to help him out over the holidays but I became flummoxed as well. So ... here I am.

Right now the camera is set to shoot RAW at the highest quality setting (the "smooth L" is what I call it). But my brother wants to set it to JPG or RAW & JPG & neither of us can figure out how to do that. I expected, under menu settings for Quality, to have all those options available but it looks like the only options are the various L, M & S with RAW.

Unfortunately no manual accompanied the sale, so I thought I'd ask here for a basic primer as to how to change the settings from RAW to either RAW & JPG or just JPG. When I scrolled thru the menu settings very quickly (I only spent around 3min total with the camera & could easily have missed something obvious, so apologies in advance if this is the case) I did not see a solution.

Any help appreciated,

zhak
