View Full Version : Postprocessing with uncompressed files
02-25-2004, 11:59 PM
With the recent extension of space (up to 1GB) of memory cards, I consider shooting in the TIFF (uncompressed) format instead of JPG. Post work would than be done on the uncompressed file.
When ready, resized to 800 max, it would be saved on jpg format before posting. Is anybody working like like that, and do you think it's worth it. Thanks for your input. Regards

If the 717 information on DPReview is correct I'd probably stay with JPEG for that camera - it looks like the TIFF files are rather slow for the camera to manipulate - each shot takes 49 seconds to write to the card!
If you are talking about another camera then I'd definitely think hard about it - I would be using RAW full-time with my EOS 10D, but I only have a 256Mb card at the moment...

Thanks for your answer. I checked with the card I use for the moment (64Mb), and, as you mentionned, it's long to load (file is about 14400 Ko). New Memory Stick Pro (compatible with F-717) claims to be 8 times faster. It's also very expensive!! The difference in quality is not clearly noticeable on the original image, but when enhancement is needed, the difference shows mainly in the colors palette. Will try more post processing, because still not convinced to invest yet!
