Canon 5D Mark III

Exposure Latitude: RAW vs JPEG

See the ETTR workflow area for more on exposure and noise and push/pull.

As shown with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Nikon D800E, a typical digital sensor offers impressive exposure latitude in RAW, greatly exceeding what JPEG can handle. The Canon 5D Mark III is similar in its behavior.

The camera’s exposure

The camera was set to AdobeRGB color space to afford more exposure latitude.
White balance was set to Daylight (actual white balance as per the gray card was within 100° Kelvin from natural lighting and a warm-tone reflector panel).

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.

Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.

  • Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
  • Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
  • Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
  • Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
  • Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
  • Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
  • Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
