Many advices say RAW files are not affected by picture control. However, when shooting, LCD shows preview according to picture control selected. The "many advices" are precisely correct, so I think you maybe are not getting the meaning. The raw data in the raw file is Not affected by the camera settings (other than exposure). However, raw files also ...

The rerason is, that the RAW RAF file is not an image per se. It is sensor data. To display it, the data has to be interpreted into an image. This is done by a piece of code and takes a little while. Being interpretation, the result may differ between programs. What you see in Windows is that the explorer or most editors shows you a low-res jpg which is ...

A RAW file does not consist of pixels with multiple color coordinates. It consists of a single value from each sensor well on the sensor. Those values must be demosaiced by an algorithm that has some knowledge of the Bayer or other filter that sits in front of the sensor wells. These algorithms take the value of each well and those from some small ...

The "Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS PZ" lens is listed in lensfun's database as supported starting with version 1.534, but it does not yet appear that there's an entry for the Alpha 6100. If you visit the web site, you can find instructions for generating images to submit for them to analyze to get new cameras and/or lenses supported. The documentation also ...

You are right. RAW is pretty raw, but of course the camera manufacturers are incorporating different strategies on optimizing signal to noise ratio. While I am sure that most of these are secret, one commonly incorporated feature is a statistical de-noising process which, when enabled on long exposures, does another secondary exposure with closed shutter to ...

Thanks you guys for your answers! I ultimately decided to download Adobe Camera Raw in order to convert them to DNG files as @KaiMattern has pointed out, albeit with drawbacks :D

The CR3 raw format is relatively new (introduced with Canon's mirrorless line, and produced by any camera using the DIGIC 8 or later chipsets). As such, not all non-Canon software can support the format yet. It may take some time before your favorite applications support it. Until then, you can use the Canon software that came with your camera. Looking at ...

The Nikon focus points map like this. What that means in terms of image pixel size IDK... a lot more than 1. FWIW, this is nothing like how the AF sensor/sensor lines actually look/work. The exif for a D850 image reads like this: AF Area Mode : Group Area Phase Detect AF : On (153-point) AF Points Used : E12 Primary AF Point : C12 Which means: Group ...

A raw image file includes single luminance values measured at each photosite (a/k/a "sensel" or "pixel well"). Each single value tells how much light energy was absorbed by each photosite. These values are listed in a specific sequence. At this point there is no "color" information in the way you seem to expect. There is only a single luminance value for ...

When you update PS, make sure that you don't open the old version by using the shortcut - I found that I needed top open through the cloud in order to make sure I was actually using the updated version and then my colours were right.
