Google+ has improved RAW-to-JPEG conversion on its website for more than 70 camera models.

Camera models that will benefit include models from Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony. Google has mentioned that other models will be added to the supported list in the future.

Google+ automatically converts images from RAW to JPEG for use on the site while retaining the original, to optimise the file size and keep the service fast, and the new conversion method should make a big difference to how images appear. 

Current supported cameras are:

Canon EOS: 100D, 1000D, 1100D, 1D Mark III, 1D Mark IV, 1Ds Mark III, 1Dx, 20D, 30D, 350D, 400D, 40D, 450D, 500D, 50D, 550D, 5D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 600D, 60D, 650D, 6D, 700D, 7D, M

Canon Powershot: G12, G1X, S100

Nikon: 1 J1, 1 J2, 1 J3, 1 S1, 1 V1, 1 V2, Coolpix A, D300, D300s, D3000, D3100, D3200, D4, D40, D40X, D5000, D5100, D5200, D600, D700, D7000, D7100, D800, D800E, D90


Panasonic: LUMIX DMC GF1

Sony: Alpha 700, NEX-5, NEX-5N, NEX-6, NEX-7, NEX-C3, NEX-F3, RX1, RX100, SLT Alpha 55, SLT Alpha 77, SLT Alpha 99

Yes and why on earth would you want to save a RAW file to their site? Sad ... next thing it'll become an orphan work and they'll claim copyright Sad
