Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning in raw format, part of Fuji X-T1: Tips and Techniques.
- The title of this movie, Fine Tuning RAW Mode,…might be a bit of a misnomer…because you can't acutally fine tune RAW format…it simply is what it is.…However, there are a couple of things…that can change the way you shoot RAW on the X-T1.…When you shoot in RAW format you do of course…still see an image on the back of the camera after you shoot…and you can review your images in playback mode.…The camera does this by quickly converting…the RAW to a JPEG and then showing you that JPEG.…However, to speed up the conversion process,…the camera doesn't generate a full 100% RAW file,…the JPEG it creates is only 40% of the full size.…
This means that when you're reviewing a RAW file,…if you zoom in to check focus, you're not going…to get an accurate representation…because you're not looking at an actual…100% view of the image.…If it's important for you to be able to review…focus on the camera, then you should shoot…in RAW plus JPEG mode.…Then when you zoom in, you be looking…at the actual full pixel count JPEG image.…
