Now this actually illustrates my point about defensiveness. At no point did I say that your opinion is wrong. I am not criticising your work, your photographic techniques, your equipment or anything else. I'm sorry if I gave the impression of criticising your work or opinions - that was certainly not my intention.
What I said was that the
you made was wrong.
You said "
The modern DSLR.can record as much detail in a jpeg as a raw file and no-one will convince me otherwise.It's the oldest wives tale in photography
Thats just simply not true. Dependant on the level of DCT compression the amount of data loss can go from almost nothing to over 80%
but there is always some data loss
. It's not a case of old wives tales, convincing people or coercion - it's just the way it is.
It is a simple fact of encoding a JPEG that you discard image data.
