Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE A2 Digital Camera ?

Raw file quality not as good as jpeg

\015 I have a Minolta Dimage A2 and when I shoot raw plus jpeg the raw file is not as sharp as the jpeg. This can be fixed during post processing but in my experience raw files are equal to or better than jpegs before any post processing. I convert my raw files in Adobe CS3. I've gotten various replies to this problem but no answers as to whether my camera may have a problem. I've been told that shooting raw is a waste of time which is not true and not an answer. I've been told that raw is the least quality setting which is not true. This may just be a characteristic of this particular camera or it is a problem. Every other digital camera I've tried has a better or equal raw to jpeg file before processing.\015

Answers :

RAW quality will always be at least as good as JPEG quality. The reason your JPEGs are coming out sharper is that the camera is actually doing post-processing on the RAW data, performing sharpening, white balance, contrast and brightness adjustment, etc., before saving the JPEG. The RAW data, as the name implies, is taken straight from the sensor, without the sharpening and other post-processing applied to it.

Unsharp Images When enlarging any file fromn the Fuji S2pro, I am not getting sharp prints. Whether I shoot raw or fine jpeg, when blown up to 16x20 they are soft. Unsharp mask must be used to make it saleable, but I am still not happy with the quality.

Remember, always shoot in 12 meg raw. Never sharpen in camera. No problem. Now try USM at 100%, 4, and 2.1 to 2.6 pixels for a good, sharp 16 x 20. Remember, unsharp pictures are usually NOT caused by the camera. 1- poor technique 2- poor lens 3- too ... Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera

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! When viewing photos in anything other than the supplied Canon Zoom Browser or Photo Professional the quality is poor. The images are noticeably blurred and appear grainy. I normally shot in manual mode with ISO80 and record images in RAW+JPEG. Processing the RAW photos seems to slightly improve the blur (though it is still there)

My Dimage A1 camera has been fuctioning perfectly. Recently, I changed from JPEG to RAW and took several images. I now am attempting to return to JPEG without success. I believe I am following instructions correctly on pages 80, 81, & 82 of the Instruction Manual, but I apparently am missing a step or two somewhere. When I click on "Image Size" and "Quality" in the Menu Section, either nothing happens or it pops back to the previous selection. When I right click on the Size and Quality, aga

I have recently purchased the NX2 software, and as recommended changed the setting on my D70s from JPEG fine to NEF (or Raw). In the past I have downloaded files using either Nikon View software or the Microsoft download wizard. But the Microsoft wizard tells me their are no pictures on the camara, and Nikon View software transfers the first two images then encounters an "unexpected problem", and when I try again it says "an unexpected error occured. Try again. This just repeats. Can you help?
