20D HELP!!@#$
WHY is my 20D when set to RAM+small Jpg recording files as just jpg's.... is there a RAW file that can't see or am I screwed? HELP!!!

#2 Is there a way to save a jpg as a RAW to get into the RAW settings menu?

Re: 20D HELP!!@#$
1 -- are you SURE you have it set to RAW+JPEG and not just one of the JPEG settings?

2 -- what are you using to open up the files? Canon software or Photoshop? and what version of PS do you have? because the canon software extracts the jpeg from the RAW file... this is what you might be doing?

3 -- you CANNOT convert a file (whether TIFF, JPEG, etc...) into RAW.

Puke! Oh god...I feel sick... (I just ordered a 20D yesterday w/grip)

I hope you kept your 10D as a back-up? (like I mentioned for this very reason).. I think you might have a defective camera...because this should not happen.. I have never had a problem with that function on either of my 10D bodies... If you aren't uploading CRW files to your computer, some how your camera is locking out RAW files.. I'm sure it is just a quick 30 second fix at Canon USA but it will cost you 6 weeks without your camera...because you have people like me getting their damn shutters replaced again ahead of you..

You might just wanbt to send it back to where you got it from and get it replaced....hopefully you'll have better results..

Re: 20D HELP!!@#$
As far as I know, you have to use the 'Digital Photo Professional' to read and manipulate the CR2 (RAW) files that are produced by the 20D. The software comes with the camera and is actually quite good; I use it all the time. As of the last time I checked, Photoshop still didn't include the 20D in their list of supported cameras.

Re: 20D HELP!!@#$
I downloaded that update and everything works fine out of phtotoshop now... I used the provided software and its a little funny because I got used to working with PS... But I still may play around with it a litle more...

The problem I had before is the 20D set to RAW+JPG makes 2 files and photoshop only saw the JPG file... SCARRY!!!!!!

Re: 20D HELP!!@#$

I'm glad you were able to figure it out...because you had me worried for a second there..

I just got my 20D a few hours ago and I really enjoy it so far.. I must say that I was [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] to find that the 6 frame max buffer in RAW mode wasn't much of an issue because (perhaps my Lexar 80x cards had something to do with it)..the plumbing is so good on the 20D, that it was able to unclog the pipes a LOT quicker than my 10D..

I really like the bew LCD on the back..and the new focusing screen....and everything the rubber on the battery grip...and on...and on... I am really likeing this camera..I feel I made a good choice for my line of work.. I'm buying another.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: 20D HELP!!@#$

Re: 20D HELP!!@#$

I tried downloading that updated plug-in but CS can't "see" the RAW images on my desk-top..? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] I noticed that the 20D wasn't among the list of cameras...but I thought that perhaps, the 20D is so new that the model num,ber hasn't appeared on their site but used the same software as do other newer cameras in the EOS line.. perhaps not?? I don't know...I beg did you get it to work.. (I'm running Mac Panther)..

Re: 20D HELP!!@#$
Did you replace the other RAW plugin with the new one? If it didn't ask you do you want to over write it... its not in the correct place... I am on the same system... after restart... no problems...
