In-camera RAW editing is a nifty feature to have. Off-course, comparing it to the RAW processors on computers is highly unfair. With this feature, one can tweak the RAW files in camera itself & adjust some basic parameters like exposure, picture styles, white balance etc.(The actual controls depend on the make of the camera). Lets see how one can put this to good use. I often use this feature when commuting. It comes handy for shots where minor editing is required. At times, I even use this feature to create a rough copy before editing the same photograph on my computer.
Above is a photograph which is straight out of the camera(JPEG). I purposely underexposed the scene here.
Now after some quick in-camera RAW edits, this is how the same photograph looks. Here I adjusted the white balance, exposure, picture styles to make this final photograph. Impressive, isn’t it? Go ahead, give it a try. Who knows, you could save time in post-processing & utilize the same for shooting.
