Depending on the camera, the camera JPG may be good for many uses yet difficult to duplicate. Even the software from many camera manufacturers does not duplicate the JPG; the camera JPG recipe is apparently regarded as a secret sauce.

Which camera companies and which cameras produce noticeably different jpegs compared to processing the image in their proprietary raw converters (with same settings as in-camera)?  It makes no sense to me that camera companies would deliberately handicap their proprietary raw processing software.  What's the upside to that?

By the way, I can personally attest that it's not true for Nikon and Olympus raw processing software.
