Here’s a long thread which has almost convinced me that I should shoot RAW this weekend.
If I wanted to batch process I can probably do something like this:
for i in *.cr2
dcraw -c $i | ppmtojpeg > `basename $i .cr2`.jpg
RAW files are known to be much bigger. File sizes?
$ du -csh *
$ du -csh img_5879.jpg
Shooting in RAW costs me almost 3MB of space per photo. I’m game to try it but the advantages will have to be absolutely amazing if I’m going to use it!
