Default Fuji FinePix S5000 Questions?

Ok I was wondering what a few option on the S5000 meen?

What is this: CCD-RAW mode. Is setting the camera to this mode better than taking photos with out this turned on? What does it do?

Also what does this meen?
"6-megapixel using interpolation"

Any Help would be great!

RAW MODE: Is where the camera records the data obtained from your photograph un-altered by the camera. This means that there is no compression, no sharpening (usually), no post processing of the image you shot. This is 9 out of 10 a better image for larger prints as you will not have as much noise that is a result of in camera jpeg compression. It also can be considerably slower in writing and continuos frame burts since image files are relatively LARGE especially if you are not using a fast media.

6 MP Interpolation: This is where the camera takes the image (full 3MP) and performs several routines on the image to produce a 6 MP file. In laymens terms it attempts to "guess" where pixels should be inserted based on the values of the pixels surrounding it.

Low-tech answer... hope it helped...

Ok So if I use the RAW file I am going to have to down load it to the computer then use the converter software that came with the camera to turn it in to a flie that my photo editing software (photo elements 2) will be able to read?

Is this the way you work with these files?

Thanks for all your help!

Yep .. sort of .. LOL

The fuji provided software will let you do some correction like gamma, color etc ... save it to the least lossy format you can and then open in pshop or whatever you use and manipulate it the rest there

Hope that helped
