F505 - Jpeg not good enough
Feb 17, 2012

Hi All,

I took some shots with the F505 with Raw and compare them to the Jpeg.
I find that:

  • there is less distortion on the RAW files

  • there is less cropped (or no) area on the RAW

  • and of course, there is less blown highlights.

I am disappointed as I am an avid jpeg shooter.
But next time, I will shoot RAW too

1/ Example 1 (jpeg has more distortion on the head, it looks longish and I hate the way the jpeg was cropped)

2/ Example 2 (the jpeg and raw has very differnt flatness and I hate the way the jpeg is cropped from my composition)

3/ Example 3 (blown highlights, yes, you could say it's my fault, but I can't keep the thing pointing at strangers on the road for too long)

4/ Example 4 (jpeg blown, even though I admit I shoulda use spot)

My conclusion from this exercise, perhaps RAW has less distortion than Jpeg.
BTW, it was shot in vivid settings under P mode.
