I set my camera to RAW in settings but when I download the SD card to my PC they show as JPG. What happened? How do I get RAW images to save?

I am using a Mavic Air.

Normal still photo or are these photos taken from active track or similar?  You've checked the SD card with a file exporer and confirmed there are no DNGs on there?

I am taking normal photos, well, stitched panoramas. File explorer shows all are JPG except one was  DNG.

Do you have it set for RAW+JPG or just RAW in the photo options on the drone?
Also, are you taking the SD card out and using a card reader or are you plugging the drone in via USB?

(Just trying to narrow things down here).

I have it set to RAw only. I take the SD card out and plug it into a card reader.

Could it be that the stitched panoramas are processed as JPG?

That i dont know - i do panoramas but its always a manual shot and manual stitch.  Simple test though, go fly and take normal photos that arent panoramas and test.Actually, doesn't even need to fly, can be done on the ground.

I did some tests today and it seems that unstitched and single photos are saved as RAW. Only when drone stitches are they saved as JPG. Thanks for the input.
