How to set ZS70 to record raw photos?

I know the Panasonic ZS70 can record raw photos.   But I'll be dammed if I can find the menu item to set this.  I've looked in the PDF manual, and searched the Internet, to no avail.

How do you set this camera to record raw photos?

Thanks!

I don't have the camera, but - assuming that the ZS70 follows the menus of other panasonic cameras) - it should be found on the page 1 of the in camera record menu. Page 1 has as  its first item 'Photo Styles, and  usually the last item on the page is Quality.  Select Quality and there you will find options for RAW and RAW+Jpeg etc. You should also be able access it through the camera's FN3 button (Quick menu) - simple scroll through the options at the top of the screen until you come to Quality, select it, then choose from the options given beneath.

Why not read the manual?  It will tell you there. You can download the PDF manual from the Panasonic website if you can't find yours.

What part of "I've looked in the PDF manual" did you not understand?

Well Smarty Pants ..... And what part of the "PDF Manual(s): did you not READ?????

There are 3 PDF Manuals, Quick Start, Basic & Advanced, all right there, if not with the camera in the box, then on the Panasonic website.

Here, let  me spoon feed that manual for you as you may not know how to do a web search.

ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/camera/om/dc-zs70_adv_en_om.pdf

It tells you on Page 173. I don't even have this camera, but a simple Google Search, then a search for "RAW" of the Advanced PDF Manual & wonder of wonders, there it is???

I can't have read "manual(s)" because you only wrote "manual". I have many powers but mind-reading isn't one of them. And you haven't even noticed that I'm not the OP, merely a sarcastic bystander.

I do have the zs70 and sure enough select quality in first record menu and there you have the choices. Raw is important for this camera since noise will clean much better. Enjoy it.

I do not want to get involved in a dispute between betters.  However, when I go through the menu options, Qualitly is there but not accessable.  I remember shooting raw with this camera some months ago but now all I get are movie options.   Any additional clues about getting to raw or even jpeg would be appreciated.  Otherwise, I will have to toss the camera and find a new one.

Given what you describe I can only  ask the obvious question, which is do you have the mode dial on the top of the camera set to Movie Mode?

If so, change it to another position - P A S or M for example, then check if the Quality setting becomes available.

If not, the hopefully someone who actually owns the camera will be along to help.

My ZS200 does not allow raw in iA mode, but does in iA+ mode.
