RAW and Jpeg

  1. When using RAW files, you get high-quality files that can be edited to create the greatest image. Since JPEG photographs have already undergone processing, they can be emailed directly to a recipient without additional post-processing or immediately uploaded from the camera and opened in editing software. Their lower size expedites transfers and prevents camera lag during shooting.
  2. RAW files are bigger than Jpeg because they contain a much greater amount of image data.
  3. Yes, you can edit and export RAW files using programs like Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, making a copy of the RAW file so you still have it with all of its details.
  4. Because RAW captures the most detail, you should use it when shooting. With a RAW file, it can frequently be simpler to alter exposure later. However, shooting in JPEG has its advantages because of their smaller file sizes, which enable you to capture more photos simultaneously and upload information more quickly.

White Balance read and write

White Balance is used to neutralize color casting in your photos. A camera will capture the subject as it looks in real life, and it will either come off very blue or yellow. The Kelvin scale is used by photographers to describe different color temperatures. Low Kelvin values, like 3000 K, are associated with warmer color temperatures, such those produced by a candle flame or a setting sun. A neutral color temperature has a medium Kelvin value, or about 5000 K, like midday sunlight. However, colder color temperatures caused by clouds or shade have high Kelvin values of 6000 K and higher.

  • Sunny- mid-morning and mid-afternoon sun
  • Shade- scenarios with heavy shade
  • Cloudy- outdoor scenes featuring overcast lighting
  • Flash- scenes lit by standard off-camera speed-lights and pop-up flashes
  • Incandescent- indoor scenes lit by standard warm bulbs
  • Fluorescent- indoor scenes lit by fluorescent bulbs
