Image Quality (Raw vs Jpg)

RAW files are higher quality, contain more information, detail and colour. That allows the images to remain high quality when they are edited. RAW Files also allow camera settings such as white balance, sharpness and contrast to be reset after the photograph has been taken, where as with jpeg (or jpg) files, all settings are ‘baked in’.

RAW files are much larger than Jpg files and therefore need more storage space and the images need processing and converting before they can be used.
