  • 100MP Raw Files

    I downloaded sample 100MP Raw Files (IQ3) - and my first question was - "OMG, how long it is going to take me to retouch one image?" What is your opinion?

    Regards, Filip

    Re: 100MP Raw Files

    Depends on your computer and on how much you tend to save your files. If you have a good powerful computer you should be fine. If you save a lot and you're not running RAID-0 or RAID-5 or SSD then that might be a bottleneck.

    On the flip side, saving often means not losing work if something goes wrong.

      I din't mean troubles with computer but imagine a beauty retouch - D&B for example. That file is so huge... It is same as you would retouch your usual file zoomed to 300%. And everything is pretty sharp and visible. You can see all imperfections and you need to give it much more time.

        As I said in a similar post. More resolution=bigger bill.

          I would not be closer than 50% most of the time. I would consider whether the smallest details will in fact be visible in the final reproduction. I would avoid the use of sharpening as much as possible, because it's unlikely that it would really justify the same level of it.

            Here you can find link to sample RAW files:

            https://digitaltransitions.com/first...7683-160777761

            Personally, I would be afraid to work at 50% zoom level.

              There comes a point when you ask the client what do you need this for? And 90% of the time it's an A4 print or 1024 web image, so they just agree for you to work on a 20 mpix version.

              No matter how minute it is, things will show when downsizing after retouching, rather then before. Of course, you can't just make it bigger again after the fact.

                Yes, you are right. But there is no point to use this camera for final A4 image. Imagine how much money client spent on shooting and than you will try to suggest to him you will retouch A4 file only. BTW. that exported 100% image is perfect.

                  Klev - you don't need to sharpen this file anyway =) (it is a joke but you will understand after you will see it opened in PS)

                    There are other reasons to shoot 100 or 50 mpix. Like:
                    1.cropping afterwards
                    2.compositing(even within the shoot, you maybe like the arm on the wider crop, but want it on the tighter image, no problem)
                    3.having the option of higher res
                    4.using the files later(shoot good hair once, have it on reference or whatever else, like flowing fabric etc).

                      Good "old school" photographer doesn't need to crop his image too much. He is pretty sure what he is getting straight from the camera. But I can imagine how these images will look on the wall after printing at 100%.

                        I no longer have an up to date capture one, so I'll sit this comparison out. I don't do this stuff day to day anymore, so it's not really necessary for me to keep everything updated.

                          Klev, you should be able to use a new trial version.

                              Edit: Those have some incredible detail. I wish they disabled sharpening though. It hardly seems like they require it, yet I could see signs of it being applied.

                                how do you open MOS files?
                                by Caravaggio
                                Does anyone know how to open MOS files not using Capture One? MOS files won't open in CC camera raw for me. Under get info it says that it is a Leaf RAW image.
                                I had a free trial to Capture One, but it expired and I am not eager to purchase it.
                                Thanks for your help.

                                OK, I keep reading about shooting in RAW. What do I need to shoot in RAW/ Do I need a special camera or program to transfer from a camera. I understand the value of RAW files over JPEG for manipulating.

                                Does anyone know of any sites where we can download RAW files in the various native digital camera formats? I've looked on the Nikon site, Canon site, etc., but can't find any downloadable RAW images (they might not end with .raw, I know).

                                Compositing: RAW or processed?
                                by mcdronkz
                                I know that RAW files, essentially digital negatives, provide far greater flexibility in terms of editing than already processed files. It is widely recommended to do as much as possible in the RAW converter before starting with pixel editing.

                                While doing compositing, I sometimes struggle...
