Are RAW Files Important in Digital Photography?

Are RAW Files Important in Digital Photography

Many modern cameras feature the RAW file format. This feature may be one of the pivotal reasons why you’ve bought that specific camera, or you may be one of those who never use this feature. For professionals, photographing using RAW is a must. But for beginners, is this feature really that important? The short answer is yes. Find out the “why?” in this post.

RAW file format is the original file produced by the camera’s sensor that hasn’t been digitally processed by the camera. In short, these RAW files are literally the raw files that are substantially larger in file size and are not yet ready for consumption, unlike its JPEG counterpart. Not all cameras have this RAW file feature. Generally, they only provide the JPEGs. Because RAW files are produced directly from the sensors, every camera with different sensor technologies has RAW files that are different. Unfortunately, these different RAW files aren’t compatible with each other and processing them needs supporting RAW processing software for that specific type of camera.

You may often listen to photographers’ questions asking which brand of camera that suits them to be a better photographer. Stop asking such question. Just use what you have in hand now. Go find great locations to shoot wherever it is and just take shots and snaps. Sometimes, people think that expensive camera makes images appear to be professional and such thought really prevents them to grow as great photographers.

It cannot be denied that we like using good camera and even use canon L series lens like most photographers do today. New expensive camera and lens are not the ones that create great photos. It is you who is capable of doing it. What about software applications for image processing like Photoshop, Light-room or Aperture? These will not be able to change a bad photo into a good one. But one thing for sure is that the software can help make your good photos possess better quality. Read the rest of this entry »

Questions Which Should be Avoided when You Learn About Photography

Posted by oneslidephotogaraphy On January - 27 - 2017
FAQ by Amateur Photographer

FAQ by Amateur Photographer

The following questions are the most common ones asked by amateur photographers which professional photographers find ridiculous. Why? It is because photography is a piece of art and not a math calculation where one plus one results two. There are so many unnecessary questions and usually they are ones to be blamed when a photo is not satisfying. Why? It is because most of them are illogical (impossible achievement of a photo for the limitation of camera, lens as human’s product).
Notes: camera and lens is created by imitating the concept of how our eyes work. Of course there are God’s creations that cannot be imitated by camera and even the most advanced lens till date.

1. Which one is the best brand of camera?
There is no such thing as the best brand because if there is one all people will definitely buy that camera. All cameras are good (as long as it is usable and functions well). What can decide when a camera is not good? It is the user that decides whether it is good or not. Read the rest of this entry »

Useful Tips About DSLR Memory Cards

DSLR memory card tips

DSLR memory card tips



Besides the camera, a memory card is one of the vital component in photographing. That’s why it’s important to be careful in your handling of your memory card to ensure the safety of your data and memory card chip. The following are a few tips to care for and keep your memory cards healthy and long-lasting.

1.Use a card reader.
When transferring photos from a memory card to the computer, many would resort to directly plugging the camera into the computer. This is quite inefficient and can drain your camera battery. Or worse, it could lead to a surge if your usb port is problematic.
It’s recommended that you use a card reader to transfer your photos to the computer. There are 2 advantages to this. One, you’ll have a quicker data transfer. And two, you avoid any mishaps because your camera won’t be part of the file-transfer equation.
Keep in mind also, I highly recommend you use a quality card reader to avoid any problems to your memory cards. Chucking out a few extra bucks for a quality card reader may save you money in the long run from having to buy a new memory card. Read the rest of this entry »
