This is an effect of being in 14 bit RAW mode - It takes longer to process the data from the sensor, which leads to a slight mechanical delay in the mirror / shutter mechanism (exact reason unknown) Switch to 12 bit and it will take the same time to process as a JPG Although in the spirit of pure quality 14 bit would be preferred if speed is not an issue. ...
I think I found the solution. Picasa has a Tools -> Experimental -> Show duplicate files menu and it seems to work just right.
The RAW sensor data is linear. JPEG images use a gamma curve, which means that increasing data values represent an exponential increase, which is a more efficient way of storing things because the human vision system isn't linear either. (Without this, excess precision is wasted on varying hues of bright colors, leaving not enough for the darker end of the ...
First, you are making a common mistake thinking it is 36 bit. I made the same mistake for a while. In reality, RAW data is monochrome and thus only 12 bit in your case since each pixel doesn't have any color information without looking at neighboring pixels. Beyond that, it depends on the software being used. Color, as mentioned, is derived from the ...
