What does the term actually mean and how can it help me take better pictures? RAW files >> Unlike TIFF and JPEG formats, RAW files contain the unprocessed image and shooting data. In many cameras the visual information is laid in the Bayer pattern of the original sensor. Back to the beginning To start to understand the importance of RAW formats we need to go back to the beginning of the capture process. All single shot digital cameras (except those using the Foveon chip) contain a sensor that is made up of a grid of light sensitive sites.

Portrait too dark Problem: Instead of a clear picture of your subject framed by the window you end up with a silhouette effect, where the subject is too dark but the window is well exposed. Cause: When your subject is sitting against an open window the meter is likely to adjust exposure settings for the light around your subject. Solution 1: Move the subject so that the light from the window falls onto them from the front or side rather than behind. Solution 2: Use the camera’s flash system, set to ‘fill flash mode’, to add some more light to the subject.

This is true to varying degrees for both entry level and high end scanners. The most noticeable of these errors is called ‘noise’ and usually shows up in shadow or highlight areas of the picture as brightly colored random pixels or speckles. Image noise can be caused by a variety of factors including high speed film grain (high ISO), under- or overexposed negatives or slides, lighting conditions with brightness extremes, and image enlargement, as well as the CCD sensor itself. At worst, high levels of noise within a picture cause the image to appear unsharp and less detailed and have the potential to distract a viewer’s attention away from the content of the image.
