Optio WG-2 GPS shoot in RAW ?

Would it be possible to get an update for the firmware of my Optio WG-2 GPS to shoot in RAW ?
(I'm missing the option to shoot in RAW, like on my K-5 and K-r)

Negative, the WG-2 can't do raw.

That's raw.

Why is it that the point and shoot cameras do not have the option to shoot in raw, or dng? I suppose that the average point and shoot user is a person who does not care or understand the intricacies of these details, or even care. After all, all they really want to do is take snapshots of the family Thanksgiving get together, or Fluffy the cat doing what cats do.

Image quality doesn't seem to be a concern for the masses, and just like music and the mp3 files, the impact of lossy compression is lost on them.
