Does anyone out there uses the RAW to JPG procedure as described by Graham Houghton

And what are your conclusions?

Are you referring to Graham's
"Panasonic Lumix FZ80/82 Using Raw to Optimise JPEG settings" HERE ?

Link you provided to an Graham's introductory video.

Have not used as I mainly shoot RAW and use RAW software.

I watched the video and any "conclusions" will vary by different users.

Using the in-camera RAW processing tool can be a great aid in learning by "seeing" in real time how the FZ82/ FZ80 camera's settings can adjust image appearance; i.e., instead of taking 'multiple shots' with different settings, you can apply different settings to a single image and see/ compare the results in real time.

IMO could be quite beneficial/ helpful when taking pictures in less than ideal lighting conditions for better exposure adjustments, WB. NR, etc. Especially if one watches and understands the concepts presented in the video.

As I previously posted:
Prior to buying FZ80 below are a couple JPG+RAW sample images I downloaded from the PhotoLab FZ82 Review to see how well the RAW image could be PP (images downsized to 5MP).

OOC JPG

PP RAW image; note image wider FOV

Of course you're not going to get the same results as the above images as no camera's in-camera RAW PP can match the PP power of a 64-bit computer/ RAW software app.

In order to fully appreciate the advantages on an RAW image one needs to fully understand what a JPG image is' e.g., JPG uses an "method of 'lossy compression' which deletes image data 'it' determines not necessary and then compresses the image data it does keep. Hence with a JPEG image you have FAR less of the original image data to work with, and whatever changes JPG processing made to image (good or bad) is irreversible; i.e., one cannot return a well done steak back to 'raw'. (pun intended )

Bottom line it's an 'option' each one will need to 'play with' to see how well it works for their type/ style of photography.

Cheers,
Jon
