    Hi,
    I noticed something strange. The drawback of shooting RAW pictures
    with a Canon G3 is that it's hard to check if you correctly focused
    the picture. If you zoom in during playback, you see a 640x480
    thumbnail embedded in de CRW file. This has not the resolution
    required to check if you by mistake misfocussed the picture. When you
    shoot in JPG mode (L SF) it's quite easy to check the focus quality.
    You can zoom in 10 times during playback and won't see any JPG
    artifacts.
    Now when you shoot in JPG mode and during de 2sec playback
    (selectable) you press the func button for saving as RAW the picture
    is saved as RAW with an embedded 2272x1704 JPG in it! Why isn't this
    unable also when shooting RAW directly?
