Re: mmm

Mainly RAW, except for low light where I produce a mono JPG as well. With JPGs I expose for the visual; with RAW I expose for the sensor, so that it may be developed for the visual.

How do you process these,


And what is the result ?

While protecting highlights the result is the midtones and shadows are too deep in shadow. One can do more with the RAW than with the 8bit JPG before the image breaks down. . .

Out of camera

Developed RAW

I took Your top one and put it in NX2 and ....

I have tried about every program and I still just use NX2 and with the JPGs from my Em5.
