Firmware Update to Enable Raw Shooting for Powershot SX1 IS Now Available

Canon Powershot SX1 IS Digital Camera

The Canon Powershot SX1 IS digital camera can now shoot Raw images, thanks to a firmware update (Version 2.0.0.0) 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 2.0.0.0 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.
