Sony IDC as good as in camera jpeg?
2 months ago

Ok, this will be like cursing in the church, but I think the question is worth debating:

Why do we shoot raw?

Look at this:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison?attr18=daylight&attr13_0=sony_a6000&attr13_1=canon_eos5dmkiii&attr13_2=sony_a6000&attr13_3=canon_eos5dmkiii&attr15_0=raw&attr15_1=raw&attr15_2=jpeg&attr15_3=jpeg&attr16_0=800&attr16_1=800&attr16_2=800&attr16_3=50&normalization=full&widget=1&x=0.6536927321850339&y=0.07974710252911542

No color artefacts in the in camera conversion.

If the in camera jpeg conversion is better that than the standalone tools, why do we bother with raw?

I'd say all details are still left in the jpeg image, but the noise levels are way lower in the (Sony) jpeg image.

Yes, I know! Raw have more data and should be better. But I can't really see it.

Do we really need raw? Does Sony IDC do jpeg conversion as good as the camera does?
