  • Troll.

  • mike, why don't you repeat that a few more times.

  • Wow, Nikon has you guys in their pocket. No wait, I mean Canon does. Just a second while I check to see who the winner is.....yeah, Nikon! They must have paid you guys tons to make you stop...

    He's a well known Canon basher and will promote any camera other than Canon no matter what.
  • Replied in Are you high?
    How is $1,800 on par with $2,300?  How is a 6.5fps camera on par with a 10fps camera?  How is a camera with a much more sophisticated AF system using 65 cross-type AF points and DP PDAF on par ...
  • Excellent words and examples. Or using 10 colors instead of 8 when masterpieces were made with 8.  It amazes me with so much talk of dynamic range these days anyone would argue that it's pointless ...
  • At least we know some people can have a balanced view on what the two files are good for.  It seems like those who use raw have a more balanced approach in general than those who insist raw is ...
  • Replied in raw is PC
    Huh? You mean RAW is politically correct? RAW is just a more effective way to edit....like the dark room is more effective than the one hour photomat; it's another level of control over output if ...

  • Replied in Excellent!
    You went to way more trouble to prove the obvious than I would have.  I say obvious because I spent years editing JPEG images and then when I decided to try RAW it was a revelation.  It wasn't a ...
  • Replied in Wow! Thanks!
    Well, you'd have to turn all of the in camera settings down as low as they'd go for the JPEG, but still your starting point will never be the same.  However, if your intention was to attempt to ...
  • This is one of the most thorough explanations I've seen of this issue. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/50024377
  • Replied in Wow! Thanks!
    JPEGs can be edited.  Detail that is not noticeable can be brought back to the surface by applying selective changes to exposure, blacks, highlights, manipulating the tone curve directly, and ...
  • Replied in Wow! Thanks!
    Thats the very definition of pointless.  A RAW file processed the same way as the in camera JPEG has a name:  the in camera JPEG.  I doubt even DPP uses the exact same algorithms as the camera ...
  • No point at all. It's just a matter of diminishing returns, not an issue of no returns or a return threshold. It's like having a robotic vacuum: neat trick and handy, but you still need a real...

  • In this case there is no "impression" of additional there is actual additional detail. The reason for this detail isn't because it is really additional or wasn't there to begin with or is a result ...
  • Replied in Wow! Thanks!
    Yeah, maybe it's sharpened a bit more than some would like or there's a bit of noise or something (not sure what kind of sharpening is done here since I'm used to ACR sharpening and ACR noise ...
  • I seriously doubt you could, jon.  Also, the adjustments he made were pretty tame, universal adjustments to a RAW image.  Considering the image is coming out of the camera with zero processing ...
  • Maybe it's my affection for old film bodies that make me say this, but I think ugly cameras look more like real cameras. Some slick, curved, LED lit BS looks like a toy and is usually used by...
