Re: JPG vs RAW for example ISO 100

Well said. I would rather that I decide how much noise reduction to apply than to leave it to an algorithm.

Noise is bigger in raw, it seems that jpg is smoother. RAW files without noise reduction applied.

Why would you compare a JPEG image with noise reduction applied against a RAW image without noise reduction applied? If you want to reduce the appearance of noise in a RAW image, apply noise reduction to it. Also apply sharpening because JPEGs are almost always sharpened in the camera.

agreed. RAW images are meant to be post-processed, Just at they're post-processed in camera to produce the JPEGs.

If you've got the time, (and a decent editing app), RAW will always produce a superior image 100% of the time.
