G1 X - Raw vs jpg - Test and samples
May 19, 2012

This follows on from the other thread

Not sure how scientific these results are but trying to determine for myself raw vs jpg

Saw another thread about recory of blown whites - as in this thread

This to me is a compelling argument but would appreciate any other expert views on this in particular

In the meantime I have tested these for myself

Shot 1) in raw - using bracket exposure and then cropping and selecting to my eye the best and just auto tone and auto white balance - this was then exported to tiff in LR4

Shot 2) jpg - shot on auto and then cropped auto tone and auto white balance

Shot 3) - copied this using windows ten times and then auto tone and auto white balance

Not sure where this leaves me but think I need to learn how to process raw before I go any further

Shot 1 looks a bit on the blue side to me - but think I need to print these out to see if my eyes are showing me what I see on a monitor?

Appreciate any comments as always get something constructive along the line

Thanks
