The ISO standard, as explained in this document produced by X-Rite, a company that produces hardware and software used for color calibration, is to view prints in light that is at D50 (full spectrum centered at 5,000K) in terms of color temperature. In terms of intensity, around 2,000 lux (roughly equivalent to an overcast day) should be used for color ...


It depends on the camera, but generally the JPEG is shown and the histograms correspond to the JPEG as well. RAW isn't actually an image file, it is sensor data. Without further image processing it can't be displayed as a particularly meaningful image since it would lack color information and would not be true black and white either due to color filters on ...


You are almost certainly seeing a JPEG preview file. Even if you only save RAW files, the vast majority of cameras generate a preview or thumbnail JPEG and that is what you see on the LCD on the back of your camera. RAW files contain monochromatic luminance values for each photosite. Since the sensor is masked with a pattern of filters that allow different ...


I have 2 D3200s and one of the first things I noticed was that at default "0" screen setting they are both way too bright. I'm a 40 yr vet to photography and it absolutely is a defect in the screen brightness. I own D3100, D5100, D700, D7000, D200 and others and have never had the problem with any other camera.


RAW is a data format. It is not an image. Anything you see in the preview is an image. If you shoot JPEG, the choice is obvious. If you shoot RAW. what you see is the data transformed into an image by the camera processor and stored for convenience as an embedded JPEG in the file. As for your question, you see, it does not matter. Whichever one is being ...


As already answered, it depends of the camera (I know mine is using the jpg because if I shoot in raw only, the preview isn't available). If you really want to know, you may test it easily: take two easy to tell apart picture (ie one of the sky and one of the ground) transfer the jpg files to your computer rename each of them with the name of the other ...


It is really an artistic choice. The standard environment for lab color is as Michael Clark described, but display of a print and the gallery conditions can also be altered to whatever conditions you think best fit the print. Paper selection, light color or colors, framing and matte options, angle of display, size of display, printing technique, color, ...
