CP4500 has a RAW mode!

It has been found out that Nikon has a diagnostic mode called DIAG RAW in CP2500, CP4300, CP4500 (tested) and possibly E775, E885, E990, E995, E5000 that allows for RAW file output. This mode can be turned on

by a diagnostic program such as Opencam or Rawenabler. The rawenabler is pretty straightforward - you can connect the camera to the PC via USB, turn it on so it looks as a removable device, launch a programm - it should identify the camera and then you can switch raw mode on and off, turn the camera off, disconnect it and use wherever you please.
You can find it here (along with the sources)

According to the author the program runs under Win 2000 and XP.

In RAW DIAG mode the camera writes two files for each shot - one is a RAW file (though it has an extension .jpg or .tif) and the second one is a normal picture. The RAW file is NOT in the .nef format. I have contacted David Coffin ( http://www2.primushost.com/~dcoffin/ ) and he has added CP4500 RAW file support to his beta version of CRW converter:

He will also include CP4300 and CP2500 RAW file support in his next version of CRW.
Also the RAW-> nef converter is under development.
