Re: CP4500 has a RAW mode!

RAW file will be half size as TIFF file, so they are of course much larger than the largest JPG file.

The benefit is to apply EV compensation and white balance after you had completed a shoot, more details can be resolved.

For those who have downloaded and used the application (RAW data in
CP4500), do you mind to tell me how is the outcome for pictures
quality?
I am not very understand the RAW Data advantages as well, what are
they? and is there any disadvanges? How big is a files compare to a
fine 4MP pictures?

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.
