After taking the shot, what are we looking at on the Reiew screen?

Is it the JPEG at the quality and picture style selected in the shooting parameters?

Is it a quickly processed RAW image (if only RAW selected).

Is it a small JPEG embedded in the RAW specifically for rapid viewing on the review screen?

Will it vary in quality, sharpness, colour, saturation etc as selected in the shooting parameters and picture styles?

Reason for question is just moved from 20D to 5D and getting slightly strange colour balance in the review screen.

My current CS2 will not process the 5D RAWs. Is there an update to solve this?

I believe there is an update for CS2 that will process 5D RAW files. Look for updates to Adobe Camera RAW (ACR).

I'm not exactly sure what you're looking at on the screen. I assume the in-camera processing is done to the image. I can still see it even with JPG turned off, but does it do something different when jpg + RAW is enabled vs. just RAW is an interesting question.

About the only real use is to view histogram, and basically be sure you got the shot. Size screen prevents serious determination of details. Plus chimping is fun.
