sRAW could have been implemented as a 2x2 additive pixel-binning reduction and actually improve on the original RAW quality, albeit having only 1/4 of the original MP.

Umm... I fail to see the point of OP. Yes, if I want to use the full potential of the camera, I shoot RAW. Yet, if I want to shoot on lower resolution and still have RAW capability, I shoot sRAW. It's that simple, isn't it.

But that's just it: it isn't that simple. sRAW does not give you raw capability. It's more similar to a 15-bit TIFF than raw.

I think we would have heard good things about sRAW if that had been implemented :D

Thanks Daniel - nice post. Sad they missed such an opportunity to do it right. I would have thought this would be perfect for an onboard DSP chip
