Ricoh Digital Cameras that Support RAW and TIFF

Still on my quest to look for thin, small, and stylish digital cameras that supported TIFF and RAW image format, I decided to stop by the Ricoh web site. Honestly, I havenít looked into Ricohís line-up much in the past. I know the general perception is that Ricoh makes quality cameras with quality lenses and full manual control that are geared toward high-end consumers and photographers. Now, I donít know enough about Ricoh digital cameras to determine whether that perception speaks the truth or not. But, hey, if Ricoh has digital cameras that support RAW and TIFF, then, Iíd be happy to find out for myself.

Ricoh Caplio R30
Ricoh Caplio RR211
Ricoh Caplio RR230
Ricoh Caplio RR330
Ricoh Caplio RR530

* TIFF in Text Mode Only

Itís interesting to note that most of Ricohís digital cameras supported TIFF format. However, they only support TIFF picture for text mode, which is for recording text documents. Of course, you can use this mode to shoot pictures, but how will they turn out? Are the pictures shot in black-and-white with high contrast? Not just too sure.

But I am sure that the Ricoh GR Digital supports RAW image format, and that Ricoh has three other digital cameras that supported TIFF image format in any shooting mode. I will definitely look into these cameras to see if they supported what I need.

Hi Chieh Cheng,

Sorry for "bumping" this old thread ;) Did you found something useful in Ricoh fw? Just today I posted an interesting find in R7 FW file. Maybe you find it useful?

It's here:
Ricoh R7 - possible FW hack for RAW
(from some strange reason, my post is dated as "Thu, 01 Jan 1998"?)

Title: Nikon Digital Cameras that Support RAW and TIFF

Excerpt: Once again, I'm in the market for a P&S digital camera. This time it needs to be as small as possible and support RAW, TIFF, or both. JPEG is no longer sufficient on P&S digital cameras that I own. Why? See my "Shoot in RAW, Always!" article.
