If I'm shooting in RAW and set the camera to one of the Film Simulation modes such as Monochrome or Sepia, will I still have the original RAW image with all the colors etc.? It seems like it only makes sense that RAW is RAW and I would still have the image as it hit the sensor. Assuming that I do have the RAW file, if I'm using a program such as Adobe Lightroom or ACR, when I download the photo into my computer will the preview show as the film simulation mode or RAW and in either case how do I get the photo to the other state?
As we all know, Fujifilm's X Series cameras have been well regarded for their quality JPG output, many photographers have chosen to work with JPGs exclusively and forego the needs of complicated RAW post processing. That being said, Fujifilm's RAF RAW files provide photographers with an incredible amount of data and dynamic range to work with, it's easy to push an image to new levels with careful post processing while maintaining great image quality. I thought it would be interesting to poll the community and see how our members prefer to shoot with their cameras. Myself personally? I had been shooting RAW+JPG for years, I liked having the safety net, but I started to get tired of having to manage all the extra data. Now I shoot RAW only for my professional work, because I know I'll always want to push them in post. Almost all of my personal travel photos I now shoot JPG only, for ease of use. I just have to be honest with myself about what I intend to do with the photos - most of my personal snapshots never get shared or printed, they're just nice memories. Every so often when I do shoot RAW+JPG, I find sometimes I prefer the JPG and can never get the RAW file to match it. I must not be the only one?
