JPEG vs. RAW
Posted 10 November 2009 - 08:40 AM
I have been thinking about shootingh in the JPEG+RAW formats during investigations to see if anything shows up on the RAW image that may not on the JPEG. Also, if I do get something on JPEG, I can turn to the RAW file to be better able to analyze it. I know this will take more space on the memory due to larger files, but since I usually use 16GB cards, that's not really an issue. I also realize that it takes more time to "process" raw images, but both cameras allow me to do that in-camera if necessary. My understanding is that digital sensors are capable of recording a much wider spectrum than the camera processing allows, so maybe there would be more information on a RAW image?

Anything we manipulate to see better we rename the new file ALTERED_BC_01.jpg This way we can tell what was done BC stands for Brighting or Contrast. We are using R for cropping. Well you get the idea.
At least this way you will have a perfect set of the original images to look back on for further testing.
