Post Processing / Re: Fast editing of RAWs to "camera like" Jpegs
« on: October 04, 2014, 06:52:11 AM »
Hi all,

Not trying to start another RAW vs Jpeg debate here. We all know the advantages shooting RAW has over Jpeg.
However, as an amateur shooting solely for my and others pleasure I'm having more and more photos mostly stuck imported to my Lightroom and never getting out of it as I don't have the time to edit them and unedited RAWs rarely look better than in camera Jpegs.  Currently I shoot only RAW and was trying to find a way for creating a "decent looking" or as in camera looking Jpegs conveniently and quickly. I've tried to using the Sync in LR for multiple photos with similar shooting conditions, but most of the Sync'd photos just don't look good enough and need re-tweaking anyway. 

I know I can shoot both RAW+Jpeg and only edit the best photos from RAW while publishing the rest quickly. Maybe I will do it eventually, but it seems to be really cumbersome and taking a lot of space on card while shooting and quite some time and mess in LR while trying to separate the Jpegs from RAWs (maybe I'm doing it wrong though).

I guess a lot of us encountered the same problem with "volume shooting" and was wondering is there an easier way in LR (or maybe DPP which I never used before) just to push a button and get these "camera like" Jpegs without hassling around to much.

Please help me set my photos free :) !

Thanks!   

 

When you shoot RAW and JPEG do you save them separately to two different cards?   And then load the RAWSs and JPEGs to two separate folders?

1dx and 300 2.8

rain isn't fun to shoot in, but it does create more interesting photos!

Love the images I get from the 1Dx. Early morning shot into the light, it catches focus somehow. This one is a slowish shutter speed to get some movement in the wings and water.

First of the day by Tom W W, on Flickr

wonderful photo!

Technology will continue to improve and change to allow photographers to take even more incredible images in the future.

50 or 100 years from now, you'll probably be able to guide a completely silent, flying, remote controlled 100MP camera the size of a hero go pro right up to within a few feet of an an elephant while it simultaneously gives birth and fends off a pride of hungry lions....and the hundreds of incredible images of the scene will be taken from a position five miles away in your jeep while you sip on a lemonade...and then you'll click a button on your remote to start taking 8k video to boot!

Planned to go out and shoot fall colours tomorrow. Weather prognosis from yr.no looked promising... Bah! Weather changed plans: tomorrow the location will be covered in low and thick clouds and there will even be some rain. Ain't I the lucky one...
I refuse to budge however, so will brew me a big pot of coffee and drive out tonight to the spot. There will be fiery hot colours tomorrow, even if I have to set fire to a forest.

PS There will be photos, in worst case it will be mug shots of the arsonist. *points jokingly to self*

funny stuff Domino!!  lol

When you enter someone's home for the first time, don't come in bitching and complaining!!

That would only apply if this individual came here and posted something bad about Canonrumors.  Which he didn't.

That's a pretty nit picky comment Acutance.

Maybe you didn't understand my point...when you come into ANYONE'S home (mine, yours, Nikon's, CR, Canon's..etc)  for the first time, don't come in bitching, complaining, and using words like "sucks" to describe something that the vast majority of us like and enjoy.

He didn't even ask for help...just bitched and ranted.  The whole post should be deleted.

I dunno. What is a reasonable definition of a troll?

Im Not disputing this.  But to answer your question my definition would include all of the people who are rude and aggressive towards others, those who put down when they have nothing constructive to say or don't like an opinion that does not match their own.

I agree to a certain point Canon1, but the OP was definitely inappropriate with his ranting and bitching so he deserves some of it.

You live here?   ;D

no, but I rent for about 5-10 minutes a day and I don't want obnoxious complainers coming into my apartment!!

 ;D  ;)

When I see sales like this I always wonder if the cameras/lenses are returned items?

Well if they are, which I am sure they are not, they would be breaking the law.

Private...nothing would surprise me in this day and age....Especially at $4800

They say "search for the light".   I found it in the forest today about 15 minute before sunset.
