Difference between JPEG and RAW
4 months ago

I used to use RAW on my *ist-DS since its JPEG output was so poor.  When I got the K-7 I decided that JPEG had improved to good enough, and was a lot easier to work with, so that's about all I've used since then.  On a whim tonight, I decided to enable RAW+JPEG on my K-01 for this picture of a rose.  I was not prepared for the difference I see here.

JPEG

DNG RAW

Some of it is probably due to my in-camera settings, I don't know.  The RAW was processed in Adobe Lightroom, but after playing with the exposure clarity and vibrance settings I believe I put them back where they started.
