    Hi...

    I accidentally somehow shot a few shoots in sRAW!? Client wants to print some of the images but not sure how to upscale or if possible? Know nothing about sRAW apart form the fact that they are much smaller files and not for printing. Photos taken in sRAW on a Canon 70D

    Am I wasting my time trying to find a way to do this? Has anyone done this successfully?

    I tried using trial of ON1 software to enlarge but I don't think it looked very good.

    Thankfully I used two cameras on these shoots so have some high res images from my Canon 5D MKll, but these are not the ones the client wants to print unfortunately.

    Having a bit of a melt down.....Any info or help welcome!

    What client are you talking about? Is a client paying you?

    Yes. I am a family, newborn and maternity photographer and the client wants to have some of the images printed large on canvases

    Cheers Joe, but have already read all the baffling info such as that.

    I would always work with RAW files usually and this was a complete mistake which I'm trying to find a solution for as I don't want unhappy clients. Just hoping someone on here may have had to do the same thing and might have an answer for me!? Finger crossed!

    The fractal algorithms employed in ON1 software are the best option the industry provides. There's no magic -- sorry. Canvas hides a multitude of evils.

    Only real solution, reshoot. Sorry but I am confused with the accidentally part. No offense but disk space is cheap these days. Shoot Raw and/or full resolution JPG and you never have these accidents.

    Reshoot not possible as it was a maternity shoot as she is now about to give birth.

    It's got nothing to do with disk space as I said it was an accident. Unsure why the word accident confuses you? I have been shooting RAW for years and would always choose to do so. Somehow in the middle of a shoot my camera changed from RAW to sRAW. I have no idea why or how I managed to do this. I didn't even know what sRAW was until I googled it. As I have been very busy of late and only just getting around to editing I have only just discovered this happened and it has affected 4 shoots. One of which I have edited but was baffled why the quality of images was so bad until I saw the file size and checked meta data and camera settings. I never check my RAW settings as never change them after buying camera and setting to RAW.

    This client wants to print some of those images large and I'm just trying to find a solution if there is one. As I have 3 more shoots to edit too, finding that solution before I edit those would be best.

    The 70D has a touch screen. While the setting is displaying, your thumb or finger accidentally touches the raw option and switches to sraw. The screen will shut off when you press the shutter button half way. This accident is preventable if you know all the functions of your camera.
