Help !!! I put my SD card into my computer, edit my photos(RAW file) on bridge and tried to transfer them on the desktop.(to JPEG) Suddenly some of them disappear and the name of the photo change from ROM_5432 to _OM_5432 I can t open them anymore anywhere I took some more photos after that and everything working well I ve no idea if the file is corrupted ...

I'm skeptical about the other answer which claims most camera modules spit out JPEGs; if that's true then how does video work, do they offload the video encoding to the tiny camera microcontroller as well ? If that's true then it has to be a very powerful microcontroller... I'd say this is pure software, and given enough time and root access to the phone ...

While Google created an API in Android Lollipop that exposes RAW images from the camera, Android leaves it up the each phone manufacturer as to whether they will make the camera RAW available to the user. Therefore, to gain access to RAW images, you need the phone manufacturer to enable it, and software to take advantage of it. And yes, it is possible for a ...

That depends almost entirely on the hardware. Android has had raw support in the software since Eclair (2.0, API level 5), but it was always left to a manufacturer-specific format if the hardware could provide anything that could be called raw. Most of the mobile chipsets in circulation run the camera entirely in silicon and burp out JPEGs, and that's been ...

The first thing you must realize is that what you are seeing on your monitor is not the raw file. What you are seeing is an 8-bit demosaiced preview conversion of the raw file created by Photoshop based on the current settings. You may even be seeing the embedded jpeg preview in the raw file that was produced by the camera at the time you took the photo if ...

I use Capture One Pro from Phase One. Opinions differ on this versus Lightroom, but I find that overall Capture One works more like I do. Here's the rub. If you have experience with a different RAW converter, you will need to start unlearning that workflow. Fortunately, Phase One has great instructional videos online. On the minus side for C1, using it as a ...

Yes. Download a copy of Canon's Digital Photo Professional from the Canon website (at least in the US). Canon has changed their download policy and now grants access to the full installers, rather than just updaters. You no longer have to have the original disk to download the software utilities that come in the box with the camera. You simply need the ...

The difference in DR between the A7R and D810 is due to a new iteration of the sensor design which has a lower minimum hardware ISO setting, nothing to do with RAW compression. ARW compression first maps the linear 14-bit image into a non-linear 11-bit space. This does not compromise dynamic range as more bits are allocated to the shadows than the ...

What you're seeing is consistent with data corruption in that the preview lo-res jpeg is fine, and that the compressed raw has a number of incorrect or missing bytes causing corruption. The question Why do images get "corrupted"? describes the effect at the file level. Use of a different file format (raw rather than jpeg) will give you different output but ...

For me this looks like storage card is broken. Replace it and test again P.S. And IMHO you can't fix the photos. You can try software like recuva to recover the files, but it's not sure what result you will get

Essentially this is a color management issue. Lightroom uses the ProPhoto RGB color space in the Develop module that you are in. It is likely that you are exporting the image using a different color profile like sRGB. It is also possible that your Color Profile setting for windows is set to sRGB and that is what Windows Photo Viewer is using. Note that in ...

Working colorspace in Lightroom is set by default to something better like AdobeRGB or even ProPhoto. But when you export to JPG files are automatically converted to sRGB. This is lossy colorspace and some nuances may be lost. Try to play with your export settings.

File size is one good reason. My 5DII spits out raw files at around 24MB each and when converted to 16Bit TIFFs they weigh in at around 126MB, uncompressed. With compression they can still hit around 70MB which isn't as memory card friendly as the initial 24MB. Your question mentions .PNG files - the uncompressed 16Bit .PNG equivalent is still 115MB so ...

UFRaw should now (since late 2014 / v0.20) support Fuji X-Trans filters. The RAW files have been supported for a long time. Sample photos I've found convert well. I don't have your exact model to try with, but for anyone looking for an answer to this, you should try it. Darktable also has support in an experimental branch (1.5) and is expected to have it in ...

Wouldn't it be useful to have a 24-bit RGB format (taking advantae of the camera's automatic processing modes)? Not really. Raw files are actually very space efficient, since they only store one greyscale channel, in 12 or 14 bit per pixel. A lossless 24bit format will inevitably create larger files, while dropping 4 or 6 bits of dynamic range. A 48bit ...

The JPEG format is very good for final output, filesizes are small and with the highest quality settings artifacts are pretty much invisible. It's only if you start editing a JPEG that you will see artifacts and the limited dynamic range. So it's a bad format if you plan to later edit images. If you plan to later edit images than RAW is far better than ...

Some do — for example, most or all Pentax models and higher-end Nikons support TIFF (which, as Raheel Khan notes in a comment above, is better for metadata than PNG). So, there you go. If this is important to you, you can choose a camera which has it. However, it seems that it's not important enough to most consumers to make it something people decide on — I ...

A camera is part of a system; So lets look at that system. I'm going to make generalisations and some assumptions - don't get upset if they're wrong. Since you are looking at a D5300 it gives a good indication that your budget is relatively low. You're not really going to be using jpeg, so we're looking to see if there's enough value in the uncompressed ...

The particular lossy compression used here is nothing to worry about. Here's why. Camera sensors are more or less linear devices, if you double the amount of light you double the signal produced by the sensor. Our eyes work logarithmically, so if you double the amount of light, it appears much less than twice as bright. Another example of this is if you ...

Even with lossy compression the NEF file still contains a lot more information than a JPEG file. There is considerably more data per pixel in the NEF file. Even if the 14 bits color depth is reduced somewhat by the compression, it's still way more than the 8 bits of a JPEG image. You won't see much difference between the JPEG and the NEF in a direct ...

If you do no editing, such as adjusting light curves, color balance, white point, sharpening, etc. prior to converting to TIFF or JPEG, then the only difference between the finished files will be whether you allowed the automated routines in the camera make the decisions (JPEG) or the preset/automated routines in your conversion software application make the ...

14-bit tiffs use more 1s and 0s per pixel than jpegs by a ratio of 16384 to 256. Raw files store a little more data in the highlights and the shadows of an image, allowing you to better recover shadows or highlights. When your camera takes a jpeg, it will perform edits on that picture, such as white balance and sharpening changes. If you were to edit one ...

On the Canon website, look under 'software' rather than drivers. Download and install the Canon RAW Codec 1.11.0 Alternatively, you can try FastPictureViewer, which is a 3rd party codec pack that support lots of raw file types including Canon. It also supports PSD, which is nice as well if you use Photoshop. There is a trial version to try, otherwise its ...

Few (if any) of the codecs in the pack were built by Microsoft. They've been supplied to Microsoft by the camera makers to be repackaged in the same way that most device drivers are not written by Microsoft either. The codec pack can be used by any application that supports WIC (Windows Imaging Codecs). Paint.Net is one popular free (as in beer) ...

the microsoft image looks over saturated to me, which has increased its acutance at the petal edges..but my guess is it has less dynamic range than the others , and reduced palette. i wouldn't personally want to mimic what its doing..but thats subjective. my guess is windows is applying a different gamma curve . since the others look roughly the same, id ...
