“SILKYPIX Developer Studio 3.0 is awarded as the best RAW converter for digital images!”
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 produce 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.
Digital SLR cameras and high-end compact cameras offer the possibility to use RAW image formats, which is the native data received directly from the sensor. The SLR camera is a Single Lens Reflex camera. For further explanation, open document link located to the left at the beginning of the article entitled, “SLR camera.”
Regular Consumer digital compact cameras tend not give the user access to the RAW data, as this is normally processed within the digital camera to produce an image in the more readily accessible format of JPG.
By using RAW images you are not just a “happy snapper” that is satisfied with stock JPG finished pictures, but rather an enthusiast that wishes to process and adjust images on a computer with greater processing power than a regular digital camera. This offers you the benefits of greater image flexibility and creativity, leading towards better results.
JPEG, which is commonly used, compresses data using the sensitivity characteristics of the human eye. Therefore, it compresses image data into a small file size while still maintaining a pleasing image. However, image quality is significantly degraded due to the nature of the compression process.
