• Is RAW really better than JPG??

    Good question! Now, I am by no means an expert on the technical aspects of photography, but I discovered very quickly the obvious superiority of RAW over JPG (or JPEG, which is the same thing, just more letters 😉 ), when I bought my very first DSLR. It can be a little confusing at first, especially before you become comfortable with using Photoshop or some other editing software. So, what is the actual main difference between the JPG format and the RAW (for Nikon users: “NEF”)? In the camera they might look the same, but RAW files are, compared to JPGs, uncompressed and because of this, contain loads more information…
