Hi, I finally got my K100d, soon I´ll post some photos from my city, but for now, I still have some boubts. In the Rec. Mode the options Saturation, Sharpness and Contrast will afect my pictures when I shoot in RAW? If no, whats more can I ignore shooting in RAW?

Thanks you all.

I believe that in RAW the only thing that affects the saved image is Image Tone which by default is set to Bright.

None image settings are affecting RAW. Image tone also doesn't.

White balance, ISO and exposure are the only thing that affects RAW.
White balance though is completely reversable and is not a permanent setting.
The rest, including colorspace , is completely meaningless.

I'll have to check the K100D (never bothered) but with the DS, I know that the "vivid" mode did make a difference when shooting raw - the only one that did (other than EV etc.). It surprised me since sharpness, contrast etc. makes no difference.

It shouldn't ( vivid is just "how the RAW is processed to jpg in the camera)and if it does it is reversible. After playing briefly with the Pentax software (don't really use it much), I've noticed my contrast slider starts at 3 instead of zero. Never noticed it before at that setting.. so I have a few questions myself. No problem to "dial it down" so to speak...
