Emulating FZ200 JPEGs in RAW?
7 months ago

I shoot RAW+JPEG and notice a nice feature of the JPEG engine I haven't been able to emulate in Adobe Camera Raw, especially in base ISO shots. The white balance is usually more accurate, particularly blues and reds, and the JPEG tone curve seems to emphasize shadows and highlights in a way that accentuates fine edges and gives a more 3D feel to photographs. Increasing Clarity and Saturation bring the RAW files partly there, but not quite.

I am wondering if anyone here has managed to duplicate these JPEG characteristics in RAW, particularly at low ISO, where the JPEGs seem to shine, except for their tendency to blow highlights.

Thanks!
