Google+ has improved RAW-to-JPEG conversion on its website for more than 70 camera models.
Camera models that will benefit include models from Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony. Google has mentioned that other models will be added to the supported list in the future.
Google+ automatically converts images from RAW to JPEG for use on the site while retaining the original, to optimise the file size and keep the service fast, and the new conversion method should make a big difference to how images appear.
Current supported cameras are:
: 100D, 1000D, 1100D, 1D Mark III, 1D Mark IV, 1Ds Mark III, 1Dx, 20D, 30D, 350D, 400D, 40D, 450D, 500D, 50D, 550D, 5D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 600D, 60D, 650D, 6D, 700D, 7D, M
