Raw Vs. JPEG

This morning I was in a conversation with some photographers about if we use RAW or JPG files with we take photos. I thought that this would be a great time to make a video showing why RAW is better than JPG.

The experiment was as follows:

  • Camera on tripod
  • Full manual mode
  • Manual focus
  • Camera saving RAW+JPG at the same time.
  • Only changing variable was my shutter speed

I took one image over exposed and one under exposed. The images are exactly the same except for the shutter speed. There are a total of four images in the video 2 RAW and 2 JPG.

I hope that this video is helpful!

Now go out and take some photos!
