Studio scene comparison (JPEG vs. Adobe Camera RAW)

Sometimes it's worth comparing the camera's JPEG output with converted RAW, for a best case result we chose our Beta copy of Adobe Camera RAW 3.1 (to be available for Photoshop CS2 when it is released).

Below are 100% crops from a JPEG straight from the camera and a RAW file converted in Adobe Camera RAW 3.1 (Beta), all other RAW conversion settings left as default (Auto mode disabled).

(RAW converted using Adobe Camera RAW)
2,882 KB JPEG (3456 x 2304)
2,903 KB JPEG (3504 x 2336)

Shooting RAW and converting using Adobe Camera RAW (still in Beta form here) enables you to squeeze that little bit more detail out of the image, the appearance is a little crisper (even better per-pixel sharpness) with no noticeable sharpening artifacts. That said the difference between the camera JPEG and converted RAW is nowhere near as dramatic as we have seen in other cameras which indicates the EOS 350D's DIGIC II processor really is performing well.

As I know the XT can simultaneously record raw and high-quality JPEG files, whereas the original Rebel's raw-plus-JPEG mode could capture only lower-quality JPEGs. You can also override the automatic seven-point AiAF focusing--a good thing, given its occasional unreliability--but doing so requires first pushing a button to initialize the process, then navigating to one of the seven points using either the directional buttons or the main dial. It's a little clunky, but you can actually streamline the process by changing the camera's custom settings to eliminate the first step.
What do you think about it?

Canon EOS Rebel line of DSLR cameras are the best for those wanting to get into more advanced photography. The main reason for this is that they allow full manual controls and the interchangeable lenses. These allow you to change so much of how the cameras functions in different lighting situations.The EOS Rebel T5 is a fast camera, has a huge bright 3.0-inch LCD monitor and exceptional autofocus with a 9-point AF system.One can take beautiful pictures automatically.

Bought this version (Rebel XT) for about $350 two years ago, refurbished. Still works well and has a good image quality.
