Anyone have any suggestions for a pocket sized camera that also takes RAW?? Looking for something small that I can carry in a pocket.
Thanks

Sony, Panasonic, and Canon one inch sensor cameras. The price depends on which generation. Sony ranges from $400 to $1200 for the newest generation. I chose the Panasonic TZ100 because of reach and price, $500. The price was low based on the newer TZ200.

These are not simple cameras... they take a video which can yield an 8mp single of your choice. Many other tricks such as multi-focus points.

Adapters [$20] are available so that you can attach filters.

Depends on how much you are willing to spend. My favorite pocket camera that shoots RAW is my Canon Power Shot G1X III.

I've carried a Sony RX100III, daily, for years.

iPhone 6S and later shoots RAW. You just need to download a third party app like Camera+. If you want, you can then post process them on your phone. Does that count as 'SOOC'?

This is my Lumix DMC-LF1 with Leica Vario Summicron lens. About 12 MP.
You might be able to find used. Great pocket camera.

...And it has a viewfinder. Unfortunately, the LF-1 is not slowblower resistant!!

In my post above I should have added that the one-inch sensor cameras mentioned do shoot Raw or Raw+JPEG or JPEG alone. They take 20 mp photos.

Sony HX 99V shoots RAW shooting and sports a 24-720 mm Zeiss lens and a pop up viewfinder. This camera is my go to vacation camera.

I used a Fuji Finepix F600EXR that could record raw, but in this camera, the jpeg has better quality, more highlight headroom, a lens profile, etc making the raw feature unnecessary. I would suggest you do a lot of research, since there are many pocketable cameras that can shoot raw, but not necessarily produce a better quality image at the end of the day.
