And here we go again. Only a few days ago I complained about constantly being criticized, attacked and ridiculed by RAW extremists for my choice of shooting -and editing- jpeg files, almost exclusively.
Today the world’s largest and most widely consulted photography oriented website, DPReview.com, has published his long awaited Sony A7 (not R) review. They did a pretty good job (if you ask me), and concluded that it’s a fantastic camera, but not without a lot of glitches, among which they listed first its terrible jpeg output.
It was only a few minutes before all hell broke lose, and comments came flooding in, saying how it’s totally ridiculous to judge such a camera on its jpeg output, as no one in their right mind would shoot, edit and re-save jepgs only out of this class of camera. Err… excuse me, but I do. Last time I checked there was no law prohibiting such practice, either. Jpeg output is one legit and important aspect of any camera, and jpeg shooters shouldn’t be attacked, victimized or ridiculed for their choice of workflow !! The RAW dictatorship just has to END.
