Canon has announced a firmware update for the PowerShot SX1 IS – the first Canon digital compact camera to feature Full HD 1080i movie recording and fast 4fps JPEG continuous shooting – that allows users to capture images in RAW format.
Owners will be able to download a free copy of Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software updated to handle the SX1 IS files.
The firmware will be available for download from mid-March. PowerShot SX1 IS owners should check http://web.canon.jp/imaging/BeBit-e.html for information and availability. Digital Photo Professional will be also available to download from the BeBit website.
