im using a 40d and i set my picture format to be large fine. its in the 10 megapixel zone but all the pics that i take is on average about 2.5mb..is this normal? i'm assuming raw format will be about 6mb on average rite?

RAW for 40D should be around 10MB. What is your file extension? How are you transferring the files to the PC?

Other than looking to see if you're shooting sRAW (I think not - that's too small for sRAW) or JPEG (more likely), something else you should know is that you cannot shoot RAW in basic mode (green square and the sports / landscape / portrait modes).

srry i juz checked my pics size again and on average each pic is about 3.5 - 4mb..so i guess this is normal? I'm using Large Fine format and not sRAW format..and i trasfer my pics straight from my camera to my pc thru the usb cable. TIA for all who post here..

That's still JPEg, not RAW. Are you specifically looking to get RAW files?
