In the last week, I've started trying RAW processing with Faststone 4.7, really hoping to like it. A few of my efforts looked pretty good, especially the application of sharpening.

Today, I went to my hunting club with the dogs and shot about 50 (100) pictures in RAW +JPEG. So far, I've processed about ten of the RAW images and find I'm losing interest. None, so far, are any better than the JPEGs, most not as good.

I'm still a rookie at RAW, but must say that, so far at least, I'm hard pressed to think it's worth the time.

I'm sure I'm missing something,.....and I'm going to stay with it,.......for awhile.


I do see more detail in the RAW images when I lower NR in Silkypix or even ACR in Photoshop.  But more grain!  Sometimes that helps but a lot of the time I like the cleaner looking image which looks a lot like the JPG SOOC.  So I agree with you!

I bet the defaults will not please me outdoors in sunlight as much as the ires on -2 Sh, -1 NR settings I have been using.  These settings have been giving me very clean jpgs at 100 - 200 ISO.  Sharp and clean!  Plus the higher ISO's look really quite good too.
