Default First time RAW, stumped on size


Set the GH2 to RAW + Fine JPEG

RAW file is 18M, 1920-1280 pixels, 2.46 MPixels

JPEG file is 6.6M, 4752-3168 pixels, 15.05 MPixels

Shouldn't the RAW pixels be close to the JPEG pixels?



I'm guessing it's ifranview fouling it up, gotta get lightroom

Yep, it's being downsized by the program you are using.

Make sure you're using the latest Irfanview version *and* Irfanview plugins version (you have to install these separately after you install the latest Irfanview version).


Irfanview Plugins:

Then, after you load irfanview, go to Options>Properties/Settings>Plugins and make sure the box to "load half size image" isn't checked if you don't want it to use a lower rez image by default.

But, it sounds like yours is not a half size image (too small for that), and it's probably using an embedded jpeg versus converting from raw (my guess is that you don't have the plugins installed, or the version is too old to support your camera model properly. So, I'd make sure you have the latest versions of both Irfanview and the Irfanview plugins installed as a first step.
