A lot of people would like it, unfortunately raw date is only available in Android since Lollipop, and then only if the phone manufacturers support it in their drivers. Any software on a phone is dependant on the hardware access layer (firmware), and if it isn't implemented there, there isn't really a chance to access the data. To clarify, the jpeg ...

Get multiple cards, so that you don't have to delete them. If you want a backup, in addition to multiple cards get a device like Nexto or HyperDrive with SSD drive inside. SSDs are worth the price here, they take less power and are shock resistant. They are lighter, too. Btw. it may be quite a bit cheaper if you get diskless device and buy the SSD on your ...
