Mr. Anderson said:How are you uploading the images? I just bought a Canon 20D and if I could do this instead of lugging around my powerbook that would be a great reason to get an iPod.
There are some other manufacturers of Photo storage systems that handle RAW - the Epson P-2000.
And you can get card readers for the iPod to transfer photos - but I don't know if it will handle RAW. I look forward to finding out.
So is only the thumbnail converted to JPG or is the RAW file converted? The 20D shoots RAW and JPG at the same time, so if I used it I'd have two files per shot. I'd not want to lose the RAW file.iGary said:iPhoto turns the RAW images you import into JPEGS, so when you import, you are actually importing a JPEG thumbnail.

That would be fantastic and I'd love to know if it works.mark1958 said:THere is no way that the ipod will convert a RAW image into JPG. That requires a fairly complex software and would serve no purpose for those who want to shoot in RAW. I am using a canon 1Dsmk2 and the files are large. Perhaps i should take a card to a mac store and see if i can do a trial run.
I have a Canon Digital Rebel and an iPod Photo 60Gb. I don't believe that it will display RAW photos (although I'm curious now, so I'll try it), but if you just want to store the RAW files on the iPod, you can just enable it for disk use and drag them on that way...Mr. Anderson said:That would be fantastic and I'd love to know if it works.
Also, see if you'll need to use the iPod Photo or if any of the iPods will do. I'm not all that concerned about browsing the images, I'd just like to have something to store them on temporarily before archiving them later.
