This thread has now gone around in circles so many times Iím officially dizzy.

I'm talking about the histograms on the back of the camera. That's why I said: "the histogram on the camera will be the same for either file"

Of course raw files have histograms. See for yourself. Obviously, they are not true raw histograms, they are generated by the picture control, but then we've already established that, or so I thought we had.

I'm unsubbing from this now, because you lot are just yanking my chain, and not providing any useful help or advice. You can all just argue with each other.

Thanks to those who provided genuine help. How do you cope?

The highlights don't stretch all the way to the right and the blacks are clipping Wink
(Only joking Paul)

To the OP, it's typical in the forums, the question gets asked, then answered then a bit of banter ensues.

Only in this case the question was never answered so I guess folk got bored.
