It seems that when you shoot in raw + jpg, you get the sharp preview. Just download the raw files...jorgeledesma wrote:Guys, I posted this topic over at dpreview <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3493914">http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3493914</a><!-- m --> and it says.
Guys, I just realized that when you switch the mode from the jpeg to raw, the image preview sucks big time. But while in jpeg mode one can easily zoom in and check focus clearly. Is this a Ricoh GR limitation on the RAW image itself or is this fixable in a firmware updates.
Some folks gave some nice responses but I'd love to know what you all think or is it just me.

However if you use RAW+jpg then you can chose from all the jpg file sizes on offer as the co-jpg file. Consequently Ricoh offers a good variety of variations without having to load up the RAW files stored burdened with large jpg files inserted.
Why anyone who only wants to shoot raw would insist that everyone else has to have a large jpg file inserted into the RAW file captured to ensure they get a good playback image defies me. But then that is "just me".
Consider that it should be more convenient to shoot RAW+fine-jpg and get the best of all world. The files still store acceptably quickly. Large capacity SD cards are getting cheaper. And it only takes a minute to scrub the jpg files entirely if determined to throw them away. Furthermore the hard drive does not need to be burdened by storing bloated RAW files.
With respect, it is a bit like "Ricoh does not have it, so I want it". No matter how little practical sense it makes.
