# subfigures with revtex?

I'm writing an article using the revtex4 document class, but it appears to be incompatible with subfig (which also seems to be loading caption). How can I title some subfigures in my revtex4 document?

The following minimal example shows how just loading subfig breaks the formatting of figures as defined by the document class.

\documentclass[twocolumn]{revtex4}
% Uncomment the following line to see the problem
%\usepackage{subfig}

\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\framebox[5cm]{\raisebox{3cm}{}}
\caption{Some dummy title for my figure which should be long enough
to occupy at least a couple of lines, and maybe even a bit
more. That's good.}
\end{figure}
\end{document}


Furthermore, the caption package complains with the following warning

Package caption Warning: \caption will not be redefined since it's already
(caption)                redefined by a document class or package which is
(caption)                unknown to the caption package.
See the caption package documentation for explanation.


So the question is, how could I solve this problem? Is there an alternative to subfig which I could use together with revtex4?

You could load the subfig package with the option caption=false:, e.g.:
\usepackage[caption=false]{subfig}
