Night and day difference between raw and jpg

The amounts nt of detail that is waiting for u in the raw vs the jpg is just night and day pre-Quattro. The Quattro improved the jpg engine quite a bit compared to the Merrill cameras, but the raw is still better.

I remember being very impressed by the detail in the jpg as well. Then finally went thru the process of learning to develop the raw in SPP. Even w/o doing any real adjustment, just converting to tiff file. The detail in the tiff file is night and day difference....

I shoot jpg+raw. Preview and mark keepers using the jpg files. Run the keepers thru SPP to convert to tiff. Import into Aperture for final editing.

Have fun w/ your Merrill
