Re: How to get rid of blue?

" I accidentally shot 2/3 of a vacation on JPG ..."

 

Yup, done that before and just another reason I rarely shoot jpg anymore.  If you don't have things set right RAW is a lifesaver.  But all in all, if settings are where they should be, a jpg can be as good and in a few cases better.

 

The human eye can not distinguish between more colors than 8-bit jpg.  It is more than plenty for showing all the colors and details the human eye is able to distinguish in a photograph. This makes it fine for an output file format.  It is a big problem when you save one several times as compression artifacts start to show up.

 

And the biggest problem with RAW is the converter.  Personally I prefer Adobe's logarithm to Canon's own.  In the early days brand-N did not even release what it was and you had to use their converter.  Not so anymore.  But the converters do vary.

 

Would I give up RAW, never.  It is just too easy anymore to use it.  I have shot entire weddings in jpg and got paid all the same.  As always, use what works, there is no right or wrong if it works for you.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

Re: How to get rid of blue?

Thanks to all on the replies.  Didn't expect so much expertize.  I will see what I can do with RAW in photoshop.
