  • https://www.slrlounge.com/raw-vs-jpeg-jpg-the-ultimate-visual-guide/ This is a pretty good demonstration of the differences between RAW and JPEG.  I have a few issues with the video and the write ...
  • Where?  Did I miss it?  I saw him say that he needed 16TB on each of three backups.  That's his conclusion, not the input required to reach that conclusion.  Does he shoot 10,000 shots a day or 10 ...
  • If one sets their standards based on a comparison to others, then they are doomed to never grow as a photographer or as an artist.  I say those two separately because the craft of photography can ...
  • This website is trotted out so often I don't even know what to say about it.......seriously, it's to wrong on every point that it's almost impossible to figure out where to begin.  This is one of ...
  • Replied in So Funny...
    This is all about one's standards.  What is "good enough" or "amazing" or "dramatically improved" is all relative.  If you don't believe me when I say that I have greatly improved on a JPEG file ...
  • I said it elsewhere, but I'll say it again. I love my images and they are 1 of 2 things I'd rescue on my way out of a burning house, number 1 being the love of my life. To say I'd be inconsolable ...
  • You forgot to point out the multiple disconnects in logic that led to this terrible comparison. Why are the R5 JPEGs pleasing?  Is it because JPEG is an empirically good way to store images, or is ...
  • Replied in So Funny...
    It seems like the only explanation for such behavior is that they're trying to compensate for the horrible destruction wrought upon the file through JPEG encoding and compression by doing ...
  • I honestly couldn't tell if he was joking in that last post or seriously thought he was telling me something I didn't know.  I'm painfully aware of the difference between lossless compression and ...
  • Where is this $100 battery? Can they? Are you referring to the power supply?  Canon doesn’t sell a USB-C cable. Please post with the results of using the $7 Amazon charger on your $5,000 camera.  I ...
  • Yeah....cRAW is compressed file format and has only that one similarity, compression, in common with JPEG.  JPEG is an extremely specific method for both compressing and encoding an image.  It ...
  • There is no way to shoot a JPEG without sharpening.  The lowest setting still applies sharpening.  This is common knowledge.  The best you can do is reduce it to a minimum, but if you sharpen a ...
  • What is slow about editing RAW files.  With a USB-C 3.2 card reader it takes no time to offload gigabytes at 200 to 300 MB/s.  A modern computer can deal with 60MB RAW files like it's ...
  • Do you have some knowledge of the OP's shooting habits?  If not, the only useful answer to this question can come from him.
  • You don't seem to understand the difference between detail resolution and sensor resolution.  And if the cost, either financial or mental, makes keeping RAW files a burden then it makes sense to ...
  • This is something many people will never understand. People shoot for different reasons, different subjects, and have different interests which means some just aren't interested in post processing ...
  • The original thread is full, so if anyone wants to comment here is the post in full....and yes, it's a long post because it was intended to be comprehensive and thoroughly discuss each myth, so if ...
  • Excellent catch on the flawed logic here, and especially detrimental to the pursuit of photography.  How often do you take a once in a lifetime amazing shot?  Or just great shots that you really love?
  • You're seeing an improvement in the sensor, not the image processor.  The processor has more to work with, and sure there are also some improvements in how images are processed with each new ...
  • I'm not sure anyone has ever said you are incapable of editing JPEG files.  They simply aren't as flexible as RAW, and significantly less so.  In some cases, where there is very high contrast and ...
