What Canon models do have support for smaller RAW (sRAW, mRAW) sizes?

Seems the EOS 60D does, but the 600D and 650D doesn't ... is there a list? Is this not a standard feature?

This is a feature of all 2-digit models and 1-digit models since about 2007.

This is a Canon only feature. I do not know of anyone who uses it honestly since those who shoot RAW do it to get all sensor information.

If I had a camera with 16 megapixels or more and this feature, I would certainly look into it. I rarely need that level of raw resolution — and I don't really enjoy the level of meticulous technical precision it requires to take advantage of it anyway. I know it's not quite as flexible as full RAW, but for the kind of adjustments I tend to make it seems like a reasonable compromise. – mattdm Jul 1 '12 at 18:53
