Can’t set RAW quality

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I have a problem w my x-t200! I can’t shot in RAW, the camera let me choose just between FINE or NORMAL quality. I’ve already tried to change settings, I use only manual mode and the only auto setting I use is for w/b.

any suggestion to solve the problem?

thank you! Elisabetta

Did somehow a function button get assigned to turning off or on the raw saving option?


Scroll down to The Function Buttons part in the Image Quality section. If this is set to off, that will affect other settings.

p.s. Welcome to the forum.

Hi, Elisabetta - I’m having a bit of difficulty understanding your question. Do you want to shoot in RAW only (which produces only 1 file; .raf), RAW + JPEG (which produces 2 files; 1 .raf and 1 .jpg), or JPEG only (which produces only 1 file; .jpg). It’s important to know this because the FINE or NORMAL settings only affect the output quality of JPEG file and do not affect the RAW file. The RAW file is always 100% of the image data collected from the camera’s sensor without any processing, whereas the JPEG file is processed through the camera’s image processing chip applying any of the settings you’ve selected: film simulation, shadows, highlights, sharpening, etc., to the output file. You will note however that even when you select to shoot in RAW only that you will still see in your viewfinder your composition with whatever film simulation selected and any additional settings applied. You’ll also see that when you playback the image later. The reason is that Fuji embeds a thumbnail JPEG image in their RAW files for viewing (and sometimes useful later when editing). To see exactly what the camera is seeing when you’re shooting and exactly what the real RAW file will look like, many turn LIVE VIEW on (I do this when shooting landscapes to make sure I’m not blowing out highlights).

Hope that helps!

    • Interesting question - I don't have an X-T200 to test but I'd suggest you try setting the camera so that its writing a jpg only - so that you could be sure it would write to the card in under 2 seconds - if you get the same problem it would imply its something other than the buffer.
    • Welcome to our forum. I‘ve removed your personal e-mail address from your comment to prevent spam etc. Concerning your question, it‘s unlikely that the buffer of the X-T200 can hold 50+ photos. There must be another reason for the behavior and I supect something like reorganizing data on the card and/or creating new folders. 
    • Thanks. As it turns out I list some stuff for sale once at a very similarly named forum.... 
    • Hello Everyone. I am a total newbee so I apologize up front if i violate and etiquette. Here is my question. Symptom: I have a controller that operates the shutter on my Fuji X-T200 camera so that it takes a picture every 2 seconds in sync with other events. After about 50 +- pictures are taken, a red dot comes on the camera display and it wont take another picture, until it finishes counting down from 5-7 seconds and it is now out of sync with what I have been doing by 1-2 events. The memory card I use is a SanDisk Extreme Pro 170 MB/s 128GB.   Questions: Q1. My first guess is that it is a buffer filling up and then flushing to my SD memory card. Is this correct?   Q2. Is there a way to configure the settings in my camera so it won’t buffer? But will store the picture to the SD immediately after its taken.   Q3. Will a faster memory SD card speed up the process? ( I think probably not as it is probably the buffer memory speed of the camera that is the limiting factor.)   Q4. The best solution is if I can find a signal or some sort, electrical, relay contact, blue-tooth or wireless, that tells me the camera is ready to take a (the next) picture.   Thank you so much, Sincerely, Jim Towne
