Digital Mythbusting #4

August 25, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

RAW isn't processed.  This is one of those myths that has persisted forever.  All cameras do some processing of the image signal as it comes off of the sensor and then again as that signal is converted into a digital file in the A/D (analog/digital) converter.  This processing affects the noise, tonality and color of an image, which is why you can have the same sensor in cameras made by different manufacturers and get different looking RAW files from each.
