    I am (desperately) looking for a remote control/laptop solution that will allow me to shoot in "live view" but capture RAW images - it seems that everything I try results in a default "large normal JPG"

    If I fire a shot "blind" it captures whatever format and quality I select but once in live view, it returns to the limited JPG.

    I am trying to use the camera on a gimbal mounted to a 20' carbon fiber jib arm - so seeing through the viewfinder just isn't an option in this case.

    Am I missing something? is this a limit of the live view (and then also of live view silent shooting)?

    I may have found my own problem - when I select SL2 - it forces the format to DX and causes some other limitations I hadn't noticed were linked to that selection....
