Re: New to digital question

Hopefully I'm answering the correct concern: RAW is basically a capture from the sensor. DPP has the ability to simulate on screen white balance, picture styles, sharpness and some others, as if they had been set in the camera. And the size of a raw file, CR2, is about 18 megs. This is why people shot RAW, for maximum flexibility in post-processing. There is only one setting, highlight tone priority, which can't be simulated with DPP using RAW.

With JPG the above is not available but basic color correction via brightness, contrast, hue, saturation and sharpness can be applied.
