Hi,

I've got a 350D/XT and mostly use my camera for birding. I'm used to that kind of photography and shoot only in manual/AV with Raw.

Sometimes though I need to do "day to day" stuff such as family pics and I'm more comfortable with the green box/auto modes.

However, I would still like to be able to manipulate the results in Raw.

Is there anyway to get Raw while using the auto modes?

Thanks,
Robert

To my knowledge, the closest you can get is using the Program mode, and set it as "auto" as possible (auto ISO, auto AF point selection, etc). You will still be responsible for the flash, but that can be a minor thing.

hth :)

I had the Rebel XT as my first DSLR an in any of the program modes the camera would not save the image in RAW.

I was playing with a T2i the other day and noticed that the image quality selection was independent of the camera mode. One the image quality was set to RAW it stayed in RAW.

Personally I think greenbox is almost always a mistake. I sometimes use it if I am handing my camera to someone else who doesn't know photography.

However, AV is a semi-auto mode. Why not just find a good aperture for your situation and use it instead of greenbox? Then you can get the raws. I understand you wanting to get raw images. I almost exclusively use them too.

Just a thought.

"p" should do what you are looking for.
