Hi all.

Q: Anyone know if this *new camera (*Pentax X70) shoots in RAW or not?

A: Nope, just JPEG....
Cynically crippling this latest *offering is kinda par for the course, I suppose ! Imagine the following scenario as the Hoytax design team sit round the table, trying to finalise the eventual specification.

"Look guys, at this stage in the development process I really think we need to assume that the average punter buying one of our bridge-cameras probably wouldn't have the faintest clue what RAW images are all about anyway. What's more, incorporating such a feature might only serve to further confuse the poor saps. Let's just stick with a JPEG setting as normal, which should keep the vast majority of our customers happy as Larry printing out their 6" x 4's ! Anyhow, we can't afford to impact upon the production facilities of our current entry-level DSLR's, now can we" ?

Best regards

P.S. BTW, what's happened to my long-awaited desire for a FF Pentax DSLR ? This year's PMA is obviously a total waste of space as far as that's concerned.........sigh !
