Re: The Real Reason Behind EXR - Highlight Recovery. RAW can do what the JPEG can't.

I use RAW all the time with my X10, and use Silkypix as well. There is absolutely no problem using RAW if you use Silkypix and shoot M size.

If you shoot L size then more work is involved getting sharpness right.

Trevor, this last statement is an example of the 'skirting around' I mentioned in an earlier post. No matter how much you fiddle around with the sharpness when converting an X10 raw file with a third-party converter, you will not extract the full measure of sharp detail, as compared with OOC jpegs. That is my only point. Do you disagree with it or not? I don't need to post examples when the DPReview resolution test makes the case so clearly.

I have no view one way or another on the positive comments you make on other aspects of Sikypix - I don't like using SP, but that's subjective. And I am conducting no vendetta against the X10 in general. In every other respect I like it.
