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.

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 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 ...

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 ...

Unless the a6100 precooks raw files in some new way, the important corrections* should be exactly the same as for an a6000 (ILCE-6000) with the same lens attached. Vital corrections for the SELP1650 are all about distortion: Without correction, that lens at 16mm looks like a fisheye run over by a truck, that is why you can't turn it off in camera. CA/...

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 ...

In the past, I have taken raw images, and created a jpeg in the camera. I have not done it allot, so I am not fluent with it, but if your need for jpeg is rare, you might consider this. Update: I got my camera in hand, and found that an approach is to make a copy of the raw, and convert that copied image to a jpeg, then save it. That does not address ...

Use a Lightmeter for Exposure That is not meant to come across as cheeky or snobby at all, that is not my intent — but the histogram does not (necessarily) tell you if you are "filling the buckets" and really does not tell you your "exposure" relative to the RAW data. When you change "picture settings" the RAW data is not at all affected (assuming real RAW)...

I concur with Wayne. You are making this more complex than it is. RAW files are unprocessed. Every image is flat. Even neutral is not actually flat, it is just less dynamic than other settings. Different shooting modes alter the histogram and change image paramaters automatically by applying a preset affect. There is no nuance. Editing software processes ...

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 ...

I don't really see your issue... switching to a different camera profile in post (i.e. standard) is really just a bunch of image adjustments that don't move the sliders (i.e. in lightroom). It is beneficial to have the camera preview/review show a (more) accurate histogram/highlight warnings for the raw data; but that can largely be achieved by modifying ...

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 ...

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 ...

Your previews are just that - previews. They're in-camera generated JPEG images created using the cameras current settings and raw conversion engine that are attached to the raw image files at the time the image is captured. But Darktable (most likely) doesn't have access to the algorithms used by the camera's JPEG engine. Instead, it uses it's own engine ...

First off, darktable doesn't know how your manufacturer processes it's jpegs, each camera is different and the method an important differentiator between camera's and manufacturers. In the preferences is a section for GUI (graphical user interface) options, specifically: Don't use embedded preview JPEG but half-size raw Check this option to not use ...
