In this video, Lauren shows you how simple it is to shoot in RAW.
All digital cameras capture in Raw but only the medium to high-end cameras offer the user the option of saving the images in this Raw format.
Selecting the Raw format in the camera stops the camera from processing the colour data collected from the sensor when each image is captured.
Selecting the Raw format prevents this image processing taking place. The Raw data is what the sensor ‘saw’ before the camera processes the image and many photographers have started to refer to and use, this file as the ‘digital negative’.
Nearly all digital cameras can process the image from the sensor into a JPEG file using settings for white balance, colour saturation, contrast, and sharpness that are either selected automatically or entered by the photographer before taking the picture. Cameras that produce raw files save these settings in the file but defer the processing.
This results in an extra step for the photographer, so raw is normally only used when additional computer processing is intended. Raw image format – Wikipedia.
