Weird that they dropped support on their own camera.<br><br>I wonder if Adobe's DNG converter will work with it? Download it and give it a try. Here is what it is:<br><br>Adobe DNG Converter and Camera RAW is a free utility that converts files from more than 75 cameras to Digital Negative (DNG), enables you to easily convert camera-specific raw files to a more universal DNG RAW file.<br><br><br>Hmm, not sure if that'll work. Aperture should work. Hit me up if you need help with it. <br><br>my photos
I leave the RAW format to the pros; prefer to shoot JPEG with my G2. Unless you're selling prints or are THAT fussy about your images, RAW is unnecessary. my2sense<br><br>I'll be looking to upgrade my camera soon, as the battery is pretty well finished and a replacement just doesn't seem worth it for such "old" technology.<br><br>- alec -
I use RAW for several reasons, even when I'm just shooting "snapshots" of say my son's birthday party. What really helps is if the picture is too dark, I can lighten it up a LOT when it's a RAW file vs a JPEG, which can't without losing something.<br><br>my photos
Because of my past experience as a professional photographer, I'm likely more aware of lighting conditions than many and adjust accordingly. I try to avoid using the camera's "AUTO" function, preferring to shoot in either aperture or shutter speed priority and "tweak" the exposure levels in-camera.<br><br>Of course, there are times when I'm lazy or in a hurry, and shoot AUTO 'cause it's easy. <br><br>But you have a solid point about RAW files; starting with more data lets you produce the best available end result.<br><br>- alec -
I can now confirm the G2's RAW format will open with Photoshop CS3, but not any other application I have. This is the first time I've tested RAW files and can now see the difference, when zoomed in to the extreme. But I'll reiterate; the use of RAW will likely be beneficial to only those with a very keen eye. The advent of "cheap" digital cameras has set the bar for quality at a moderately low point, which the average consumer has been forced to adopt.<br><br>I'm left wondering if Apple were to support the RAW format for its iPhoto online ordering, would we see an appreciable difference in the final product? I have a feeling the answer is yes.<br><br>- alec -
