Re: RAW is not Future Proof...
In reply to brianj, 11 months ago

I'm a little more optimistic over the next few generations - seems to me electronic media are here for a while and that eventually there will be some professional consensus about archival file standards and that will filter down to amateurs.  I'd hope someone before the end of this Century would be able to look at all my stuff in something like an archival DNG format and decide what they want to keep.  The contradiction is that what makes an image memorable is often a product of both the original exposure and post-processing and I'm in doubt about how to preserve a "finished" image file.

Long term, googling tells me the oldest written hardcopy manuscripts are about 3500 years old, and you're probably right.  I'll hope I live long enough with enough wits to print my own archival shortlist on good enough media.
