Hi Gerald,
I am using 450D as well and didn't encounter the problem you mentioned above.
Is the display showing RAW or RAW+Jpeg?
If it is RAW+Jpeg, you will have both formats for each photo inside your SD card.
Then when you load it to Photoshop, it will only show Jpeg files as you will need an converter to import RAW files into your photo-editing software.

You can try to take a photo now by setting it to RAW and immediately view them on your PC.
If it is not RAW format then perhaps you can upgrade/reinstall to the latest firmware.

Hope you can solve your problem soon. :)
Cheers.

Memory card doesn't have any brain in it to do the processing

Check your cam setting again (menu function), make sure you did not accidentally change it

If it is true then you got to make a big fuss to CSC :bsmilie:

How do you edit them? Which program are you using? Please bear in mind that all RAW files will contain a low resolution jpg file as preview. Some picture viewer (and maybe some other editors incapable of reading RAW files) might pick up this embedded jpg. But it should be very obvious from the image size and quality. Check with the image property display of your editor.

Thx guys for your replies. I set to RAW only..not RAW + Jpeg. I know if i choose raw + jpeg it will produce both formats. I double checked and it's RAw only.

Strange thing is that last night i used the same card to shoot moon shots and they turned out to be RAW. It's only this afternoon when i shot some photos and suddenly they turned out jpeg instead.

I think you blur blur selected the 'RAW' option, but did not press 'set' on the camera to set it to RAW, so it went back to JPG and did not select RAW.

By any chance you shot your JPEG photos in auto modes (i.e. full-auto, portait, etc)?

IIRC, RAW is only available in modes above full-auto.

Oh..the afternoon photos i chose portrait mode while the moon shots i used M mode. Was that the reason? U mean only when select M mode then will turns out RAW?

IT's the transfer. If you transfer pictures from your cam (RAW) to computer that doesn't have dpp on it, the camera will convert the picture to JPG before sending it to the computer. Should still be RAW in your CF.

Portrait mode? If it is auto setting, then it's JPG. If you're referring to P, then you can choose RAW.

I have been using Canon DSLR for 4yrs. Although I seldom ever used the auto modes, I have always thought that the picture format and the shooting modes are independent settings.. Guess I am learning new things everyday!

cos portrait is auto mode, hence no raw. :)
I see..i learnt sth new again. Thx!

Confirmed. Jpeg Only when dial is set at Fully Auto and below (Landscape, Portrait, etc). Raw setting takes place only when dial is set at Advance modes like P, Av, Tv, etc.

Thats right, only the "creative zones" gives you the option of RAW. Any other modes will override your RAW settings.
