Nowadays consumer digital cameras are very popular because of their ease of use. Unfortunately, consumer digital compact cameras have limited functionality that reduce the quality of the image and therefore roduce inferior results. These shortcomings could be: unnatural jagged edges, unnatural colours, over saturation, over sharpening, pixilation and excessive colour noise from high ISO photos.
In order to achieve better quality images, RAW photography has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years. Many enthusiastic (semi) professional photographers are demanding the best quality from their cherished images. As a consequence, photographing in RAW format bypasses standard factory camera settings and enables you to creatively explore the full potential of your camera.
