Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 Digital Camera ?


\015 When I shoot RAW+JPEG with my Dimage A2 and compare them in Photoshop CS3, the RAW capture is way softer (less focused) than the JPEG. This is not the case with other digital cameras I've used. Is the Minolta applying that much sharpening to the JPEGS or doing a lot of processing that makes the JPEG so much clearer than the RAW file or is there a problem with my camera? I never noticed this before because I never shot RAW+JPEG before. I usually always shoot RAW but noticed a little more noise lately which I attributed to low light shots but then did a little experiment in good light using the RAW+JPEG capture and found this fairly obvious descrepency between the two files' quality. Can someone else with a Dimage A2 capture an image in RAW+JPEG, compare them and see if they find the same quality issue. With post processing I can bring the RAW up to or surpass the JPEG quality but shouldn't the RAW file start out better? I just need to know if my camera needs repairing before I spend $200 for repairs when this problem may just be an inherent characteristic of the Dimage A2.\015

\015\012I think there is noting wrong with your camera, its a simple difrence between formats, You can apply sharpness in photoshop to your images if required. The image might be a little out of focus maybe?
\015\012If you go to a camera shop and ask if you can take a raw shot and then view it on a pc in the shop and look at the difrences.

Canon Powershot G10 image quality problems... I have had my Canon Powershot G10 for 2 years and have had the same problem from the start... it is now driving me mad!
