Re: This is very exciting news!...

One guy here in Russia has been analyzing a CP2500 firmware update (SPARCLite RISC processor instructions set) and an uploader software and found this along with some other information (such as deadpixel maps, graphics etc).
The mode can be switched on and off.

I think the best way is to set an option for the smallest jepeg with the highest compression. This way the second file will take less space but can be treated as a thumbnail for preview, also it contains EXIFF data. Though the camera creates two files in this mode the space they take together is less than for TIFF and still RAW contains more data than tiff (12 bits per pixel vs 8 bits). This is because TIFF contains interpolated data.

How was this found out?
Can it be disabled after enabling?
Maybe Phil should post this in his news column, that way Nikon may
become aware of this. Now they have no more reason to not make it
available in all their cameras!
