Troubles with RAW

26 Oct

In theory, saving images in RAW format and converting them to jpg / png format on the computer should let you get a better result than letting the camera do the conversion. In practice, I haven’t been able to get my converted images to look as good as the camera gets. Even the image browser I’m using (IrfanView) displays the RAW images better than my conversions. Most annoying.

  • Sunset image (RAW) as viewed by IrfanView

  • Converted to .png using UFRaw

For the moment, I think I’ll go back to using jpegs and bracketing my exposures. Apart from anything else, it saves a lot of time.
