Well, in the case of my now ageing (like me :) Olympus C3020, that is 
not an available choice unless you go into the camera's menu's and 
change the saved image format.  So thats not a "linux" problem per sie, 
so quit blaming that on linux, its apparently universal.  Be aware 
though, that saving as a raw will use up the memory card at an 
astounding rate, in my case converting a 64 meg card from an 88 pix 
card to a 6 or less pix card.  AIR .tiff will make it a 13 pix card.  
As I can make quite usable cropped and expanded to 8.5x11s from 
the .jpg's, I don't often wade thru the menu's to find that option.  
Its also lost when you turn the camera off in my case, so after 
experimenting with each format once, I've never done it again.

WRT battery life, I polished up the battery case contacts to remove some 
oxidation, and have now been using the same batteries for about 6 
months.  It was about 6 pictures before I did that.  YMMV of course, 
but if you have a gold colored contact, it may not be gold, but this 
oxidation.  Look it over very carefully with a good glass, shiney, its 
gold, dull, its oxidation.

stupid bounce rules.  I do use spamassassin too. :-)
