I wonder what happens if you convert the RAW to JPG?

It will still stay the same as the RAW equivalent only without the headroom to make corrections.

And yeah I saw that link before. RAW looks way more dynamic and vivid compared to JPG. The blue sky in the gif looks like crap in the JPG version.

 

JPEGs are processed in camera with corrections already taken place, notice how the vignetting is only there for the RAW file. Lightroom has lens correction profiles built in for heaps of equipment, so it will apply those as you import the RAW files.

 

Cameras always have funky presets for their JPEG files, and while they're all right for most uses, you definitely don't want any of that when taking pictures of the sky. RAW files don't really inherently look better, it's just the JPEG export presets ruining the JPEG, making the RAW file look 'better' than the JPEG in that particular shot.

 

Anyway, I like to shoot RAW because I have more leeway in bringing back images from doom, because I'm a dumb dumb and always have better things to do than to chimp after every shot making sure it's perfect. Also, since I use m43 I need the extra headroom because their low light capabilities aren't as good as their bigger sensor brothers.

 

Perhaps one of the biggest advantages is that you don't need to worry about white balance at all, it can all be done in post, which is extra useful in low light where cameras tend to be derpy.

@Mekaku ep 9

That was some seriously bad CG a
t the beginning of the episode.
The rest of the episode was cool though.
Especially these awesome BW drawings!

That's the dude who also sung the SZS OPs ♥
I think I'm gonna watch that show when I finish Gosick.

One of my absolute favorite OPs:

And apparently, Nike comes from Tibet. Lhasa to be more precise:


And don't tell me she...

....is actually falling in love with this twelve-ish year-old!
Not cool.
I always hoped they would not go this route.

I wanted to buy legal music, so I went for iTunes. iTunes though lately recently upgraded their music quality to 256kbps AAC/.m4a or somewhere there. When I bought a K-On! CD I compared it to my iTunes K-On! songs and virtually found no difference. Plus, the icons for my music files were blue in .m4a instead of red.

 

I found out there was a nero AAC encoder for Foobar2000, and found out it was tons better than the paid converter I was using (xilisoft).
It offers VBR 400kbps Q.100 encoding. The plugin includes 512kbps ABR, but I don't find a point in that because it annoys me when the bitrate keeps changing during playback.

I think Australia's ISPs are trying to discourage torrenting by throttling upload speeds. But all that's going to do is decrease the seed/leech ratio!

 

 

By the way, that is one nice visual style you have going on there.

Really? My ISP is a pretty small one and doesn't really care about what you do as far as I'm concerned.

 

Thanks. It's Lucent. Link here. Has a few problems with certain Windows (3rd party programs) where text constantly overlaps one another so you get this mess of a lot of layers of text on each other but that rarely happens.

 

Awkward to find a dual-monitor wallpaper that fits this obsolete aspect ratio.

 

Also it's awful that people think using the bittorrent protocol = pirating all the time now. Sure, pirates use it but it's not the only thing it's used for.

It's okay b/c it's all legal. :smile:

 

Animetake basically only has HorribleSubs and I was too lazy to look elsewhere. Also, I only have 1280x1024 monitors so 720p is enough.
