The Canon Powershot SX1 IS digital camera can now shoot Raw images, thanks to a firmware update (Version 188.8.131.52) released today by Canon. With the unprocessed Raw format, photographers can adjust white balance, exposure compensation, and sharpness before converting to JPEG.
SX1 users can also download Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software, an image editor that can process Raw images.
Firmware 184.108.40.206 and the Canon Digital Photo Professional software are available to users of the SX1 IS. You will be prompted to enter the serial number of your camera before downloading.
