hi all,

up to last few days have always taken RAW and edited in silkypixand have been pleased with results -I edit in silky and always have to increase sharpness and contrast - convert to tif and do the rest in paint shop pro 7 changing to jpg for websites etc. I have now been taking jpg images (fine) in the camera and i must say that the quality is as good as and in some cases better than my previous efforts! the shapness is superb and doesn't need increasing and the contrast is a lot better (to my eye and my screen). Am i missing something with the RAW thing or is the in-camera processing better than i imagined? or more likely better than my understanding of silkypix! Would appreciate any input on this and what conditions you think RAW should be used.

I always figured That the best chance for me to get the best photo with a Panasonic camera was to shoot a burst or at the least several photos......So I find RAW to be a poor choice as the write time is too long.

I have seen excellent shots that others took in RAW ,but only they know if it was better than they would have got with a JPEG......my feeling its not much, if any better.

Now with my Nikon cameras I shoot RAW all the time, as I give up nothing to do so, and Nikon has a software that understands their RAW format, making adjuustments very simple, if any adjustments are needed at all.

hi genece,

i think you told me several posts ago not to go too much on the RAW thing and i must say you were right - i have tried burst mode and it can't catch up!! I will now do next sessions on jpg and see how it goes - thanks for input.
