http://live.pirillo.com/ – What format is better for digital camera: RAW or JPEG? Most digital cameras in the "prosumer" to consumer range don’t really save out to a RAW file format, and instead always save in JPEG.
JPEG is a lossy compression format, which means that some data is lost when the image is compressed.
RAW is essentially just that: the raw data is saved to the file without any compression at all, and thus no data loss.
Professionals like using RAW files because they don’t want their camera doing any processing at all, so they can manage the files on their computers as they see fit.
Which one is better? For consumers, JPEG is the way to go: it’s ubiquitous and support for it isn’t going to go away anytime soon. If you’re a professional you’ll probably choose RAW.
What do you think: RAW or JPEG?
