Still Trying to Convince Myself on RAW
Jun 29, 2013

I suppose we all do this comparison stuff between RAW and JPG to try and convince ourselves of the vast superiority of RAW, but I am still a work in progress. Shot a band camp recital in RAW and JPG. Shot from 1600 to 6400 jut to stretch the limits. Opened up the RAW images, a little shocked at the noise at 6400. Opened up the JPG image, AMAZED at the smoothness and perfection of the image. At 1600 there is not much difference,  would say no problem whatsoever up to 1600.

So a couple of comparisons, proessed and not:

You can view them in original by clicking through. Maybe you have an example where RAW shows its superiorty. So far I haven't seen it.

I am not fighting it, still trying to learn. Bought another book on it by Jon Canfield. What I need to learn is how to process the RAW to get them to begin to compare with the camera's internal processing.
