Flash Retriever now has support for raw image formats.  Many higher resolution digital cameras have the capability of saving uncompressed "raw" image files.  These images are not as easy to use as JPEG, but they have fewer compression artifacts and are of generally higher quality.  Many of the recovery programs available on the Internet do not support these "raw" image file formats.  Flash Retriever now has this capability, including the ability to display thumbnail images from raw camera files.  Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Kodak and many other cameras are supported.  Click here to see the complete list of cameras that have been tested.
