How much difference is there in practical terms between shooting in raw format and high quality jpeg mode on the Canon d30?

For the web, no real difference, may be some advantages for printing.

All pics I have had printed by Photobox have all been from JPEGS and I am happy with that.

One recent order for a helicopter pilot, he was blown away with the 15 x 12's that I passed on to him.

Just my thoughts anyway.

Thanks Gary,

I don't usually print much above A4 size anyway so JPEG sounds fine for me.

If the image out of the camera is perfect, and needs no post processing, probably doesn't matter too much. If you need to post process (adjust levels, curves, colour, sharpness) then working in 16bit mode will result in a superior image - you can only get this by converting RAW to 16bit .tif.

Another reason - post processing software is improving all the time. I'm amazed at how much better results from the new Capture 1 LE software are compared to RAWs processed with Breezebrowser or Canon software - fortunately, because I always shoot RAW, I can go back and apply this enhancment to my older images.

Cheers,

Colin

I have used the Capture 1 software till the trial run out a few days ago  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Is it me or does it desaturate the images quite a bit?
They looked a little grey to me.

Apart from that, I was impressed.

Gary - well I can't say I've noticed that on D60/10D images, haven't tried it on a D30 image yet ... each camera has its own profile, so there may be a difference. Of course with all the controls available adjusting the stauration shouldn't be a problem.

Cheers,

Colin

I've not tried photobox

Software wise I find photoshop a bit complicated but I'm trying out photoshop elements at present which seems easier to handle. Which are the best packages to trial
