Camera Stopped taking Raw

I have a Canon 1000D and have been taking images in raw and now it is only taking JPG even though it is set to the large raw setting. (not the raw + jpg) . is this a major problem to fix or am i better off starting again as the camera is now 7 yrs old.

 

Thanks in Advance

That is a very curious issue, most especially because you say it is set to save as RAW.  You might try changing the file save format settings back and forth to see if that wakes it up.  Try resetting the camera.  Try reformatting your memory card and/or use a new card that has been formatted in the camera.  


Not sure if your camera is still being repaired by Canon.  But, an upgrade would be a significant improvement, and would cost not too much more than a major repair.  I have saved a lot at the Canon Onlne Refurbished Store.  They give you one year warranties, just like the new gear.

Re: Camera Stopped taking Raw

I did a restet of the camera, I placed a new memory card in it, changed the lens, cleaned the lens points, changed the settings around, changed the menu setting of raw to raw+ jpg, then back to raw only, and nothing is altering it, i have checked the computer thinking it might be a problem in it taking it as a jpg only even tho it was taken in raw, I use photoshop cs5 and all my previous pictures before this happend still open as raw...it also has been not turning on at different times, so i have ordered a new battery, this issue started with the camera not focusing , it then would focus but suddenly not giving raw.

Yeah, it sounds like the camera is about to quit on you.  I suggest considering a new camera.  If your have any questions about the current models, don't hesitate to ask.  Lot's of folks around here who know a lot about them.

You can check, but I don't think Canon Service still repairs that lens.  It ain't dead, yet, so a repair probably isn't worth it.  That money would be better spent on a body upgrade at this point.  I think the older Rebels were better built than the current ones.

Maybe I'm missing something, but do we even know what lens the OP is using? Actually, I think he said he changed lenses and the problem persisted.

correct I changed the lens, i cleaned the contacts and problem still persisted I have 2 canon EFS 18-55mm image stabliser lens and it was doing the same thing with either lens, which indicated to me NOT A LENS issue but a camera issue

LOL.  Senior moment.  I had meant to say camera, not lens.  That's what i get for not wearing my reading glasses, too.
