Help needed-1DS CR2 and JPG differences
« on: March 26, 2012, 11:05:30 AM »
I suspect that the answer might be  "RTFM", but I'm going to ask anyway...
When I shoot JPG's and CR2's, Bridge shows the CR2's as really, really underexposed(3-4 stops), and the JPG's are slightly over exposed
I've tried changing settings within bridge and on the camera-nothing seems to affect it.
Is this what everyone else experiences?
Is there a setting that I've missed?

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but it's driving me nuts!

While I can't imagine the difference being quite as extreme as described, when you take a jpeg sometimes the camera will push the exposure a bit to look proper. The raw file, being the data the sensor captured, would not have this push unless you told your processor to do so.

It may be a sign that you are underexposing your images for some reason.

Your camera can be set to adjust jpegs in camera, but raw is what comes off the sensor.  If you just got the camera, do a total reset to return things to the factory settings.  Otherwise you won't know what to expect.
