Raw mode for Canon Powershot G7
We owners of the Canon Powershot G7 camera request Canon to include a raw output capability in the next release of the camera's firmware. As serious users of the camera, we find the lack of this capability in the camera to be a limitation in the following ways: - No choice of colour space beyond the limited sRGB space - No flexibility in noise reduction approach, so important on a 1/1.8" CCD sensor - No lossless correction of white balance errors - No custom curves for converting to jpeg - No scope for correcting minor exposure errors after capture In addition, as supporters of the Canon brand, we believe this to be in the interests of Canon as well, as the lack of this mode has been a consistent criticism in reviews by the photography media. Addition of this mode to the G7 would provide significant market differentiation of the G7 over competing models, such as the Nikon P5000. We believe that it would not impact on low-end DSLR sales, as any photographer interested in raw will be well aware of the many other advantages a DSLR offers over a compact camera.
