I read something thee other day which seemed to imply that TIFF files were "RAW".
Not at all sure what gives & why I should bother as JPEG seems fine.
I'm attaching two photos in one image which were shot on my "Birdwatching" Panasonic Lumix FZ 4, in TIFF mode - and for some reason the camera records the identical image in BOTH .TIF AND .JPG formats simultaneously.
After a good deal of experimentation, I have managed to get these photos into a format where the pixils are visible in an uploadable file.
As you can see, the images are identical in pixil size, spacing &tc, but with very minor variations in some intermediate tone pixils. Needless to say, these are very much digitally-zoomed in PhotoShop Elements 2 to show individual pixils.
So - are TIFF & RAW identical ? (sorry, nothing in the camera's menu about "RAW")
What's the advantage of TIFF over JPEG? Looks to me like all it does is create larger files with nothing to gain.
I'd really like to find out about this, Thanks for any comments.
