One final request: Could the whole sensor area be made available in RAW so that we can recover the maximum possible amount of data?


Thanks again for the information


Roger
On the E-30/E-620, the frame selections are only recorded in JPEG form. If you record RAW simultaneously with JPEG the RAW file is always the usual 'full' 4:3 area.

On the GH1, I believe the JPEG and RAW files will be the same areas. If the whole sensor are was recorded, the extreme corners would be missing.
