              canon powershot A700 (a 2006 model) is more better zooming speed than sx150IS.
              why canon forgot to put 'speed controller' on sx150 zooming switch??

              I don't think that the SX130is has RAW either. I have been testing this camera this week and it has some good features but I am not getting images or video of exeptional quality. I love the look and feel of the camera as well as the screen and menu.

              It looks like you're right the SX150 does not shoot RAW, we'll update our specs asap.

              I am not Sure that Canon Powershot SX150 IS Digital Camera supports RAW Image Capture Capabilities because the official website also do not claim anything like this and I do not find anyother website which claims the same.
