You may not be aware, but the histogram on the back of your DSLR is built off the jpeg image, not the full raw image file. If I choose to shoot raw images in the wider Adobe RGB color space, then we should get a full and accurate histogram for the raw image file.
For those who are unsure, it is possible to store both raw and JPEG on the card, but that does take more memory and write time. Not recommended, but an option. Personally, I haven’t stored a JPEG in camera in years.
Jpeg and raw both are the formats of the photo. Jpeg compresses the data while storing in the memory whereas raw store data as it captures. https://supportnumbers.net/aol-technical-support/ here you will get more explanation of this.
when i capture images using RAW format, it’s super easy to edit my photos using photoshop and other tools 🙂
agreed! if planning on doing some editing, even if just small stuff, RAW is the way to go :).
