Raw timelapse

[ Edited ]

Hey, just got a fusion and testing out all the features.

Main goal is to shoot timelapses. (or more, continuesly shoot pictures while I focus on other things and have my hands busy, so.. timelapse photomode seems to be the best option for that). For the best results I’d love to do that in the RAW format

 

Now.. i’m able to shoot a normal RAW picture as a normal photo. (obviously) 

I’m able to shoot a picture timelapse in JPEG. 

But, so far.. I haven’t been able to shoot the timelapse photomode in the RAW format. Am I missing something?

 

A bit of digging on the internet talked about slowing down the pics to once every 5 seconds or so to allow for the camera to write the files and such.. Also faster cards could help, but these are the ones that came with the camera (so in theory, good enough). I even brought it down to about 10s/pic. But still everything is saved as a JPEG in a picture timelapse.

 

So, am I missing something to allow for the RAW pics in timelapse? or is it simply not possible to allow the camera to shoot RAW images continuesly?

Re: Raw timelapse

Hello @stevend3638. RAW Format is available only for the Photo capture mode. The options for this setting are Off (default) and On. Thanks!
