Here is a comparison between the raw and the jpg format of the p850!!

Now that I tried the 2 settings I think I will shoot most of the time in Raw

PS: the raw format was edited with the easyshare program!

I do like the detail and contrast in the raw shot! Much, much better in fact!!

That's an amazing difference!

Were both pictures taken with the same settings? Color's aside, the RAW one is much sharper than the JPG version.

Well I understandwhy the RAW picture is sharper. There's no loss of detail from the compression, but the JPG image colors are a lot different... dind't think JPG would actually have this kind of effect.

:O

Very impressive comparison. And since that type of photo (homes) represents 99.999% of my camera usage, I'm motivated to go back and start playing with RAW again.

That's a substantial difference, when I did a comparison shot with my p880 when I first got it, I did not see such a wide margin of difference between the pics but I suppose that could have to do with the subject and lighting, I'll investigate into this a bit more

One should also point out the SIZE difference, RAW files are absolutely great if you're going to do editing but JPEGs allow for more pics, great for vacations yaknow? On a 2GB card I can take 128 pics at 7.1mp (I mostly use 7.1 to get that 3:2 size ratio for printing) or with Fine JPEG I can fit 372 pics, that's almost 3 times as many!



If you really need to take LOTS of pics, these mordern kodaks will still take good pics at basic JPEG and .8mp, with a 2GB card I can take 9204 of 'em! :lol:They still come out clear enough:

8 years ago, to get a pic like that on a digi cam you'd probably have to spend about $400.

And yeah, I spent about that on my current camera, but it can take much nicer pics :-)

Alot of my pics will be of concert performances, this being the music festival season and all... but I haven't gone to any yet. At one of those I might take 128 pics in a single performance, so I need to use JPEG to fit all of it onto a single card.

There is a big difference because I edited the raw format...

With the Jpg I can't do an edit like the one in Raw!!

The jpg and the raw format are very similar when they came out of the camera but the advantages of the .raw format is the editing options:-)
