Re: 100-400mm IS Canon lens – EOS 20D and RAW…Aramok::2006-12-15 2:47
I've not been around for a while, so sorry for the delay.

Even when the camera is set to jpeg the camera always records in RAW and then converts the file to jpeg as it writes it to the flash card, so if anything it should be quicker in RAW only. The camera uses a set filter to convert to jpeg which never varies for the conditions etc, so it is better to shoot in RAW and manually control the filters afterwards.

Similarly with B&W, RAW still records in colour (I found this out in the summer when I played wit settings on holiday and at the conversion stage in Canon's DPP (or any other raw converter software) you can set any B&W photos back to colour without any losses...)

So in answer to your question, as with the other, I don't think it is the camera... maybe you have enabled another setting my accident along the way. The camera does have an automatic DOF option, which would take longer, but you set you manually set those filds.

Maybe you need to look at the settings for where you focus from. I have mine set to the center (left, middle or right) points most of the time because I have noticed that my camera and my lens combination does not focus as easily on the top or the bottom focus points for some reason. I'm waiting for my 2 new lenses to see if this is feature or just the orginal lens I was using. But I tend to stick with the middle center focus point which is much faster for some reasona and then holding the shutter release down, adjust the composition and the take the picture. Perhaps this is what you are notcing - but with the next step up camera (I'm on the 350D), I would be surprised if this was an issue, but maybe it is...

Hope that helps
