SX60 Teleconverter vs RAW

For the first time I investigated setting my SX60 to save in RAW format. To my dismay, I lose Teleconverter function when I make that change.
The shortcut button menu shows the T is not available whenever I have the camera selected for RAW.
What's up with this? Any work around? I was looking forward to exploring the Teleconverter. The Digital Zoom had gotten down graded by all I've read but the TC was deemed "ok".

As far as I know, the teleconverter of the SX60 is similar to the digital zoom, thus no optical teleconverter but digital.

The RAW image gives you what the sensor records, without any further processing of the image. As the digital TC is a type of processing of the image (basically a crop), obviously that has to be turned off if you want to record an unaltered image in RAW.

However, you should be able to crop to the same level in postprocessing as what the TC would give you.
