Many digital cameras have an option for blown highlights being indicated on the camera monitor. RAW or JPG - not much (if anything) to be saved there.

Oh not again - quick hide the thread
Getting it right in camera might involve blowing the highlights.
Getting the rest of the image details exposed correctly might mean that the highlights are blown,
in order that the darker shadowy areas of the image retain detail/colour information.
This is based on the assumption that 'exposing to the right' is a safer bet for 'getting it right....'?
Quote: I prefer to get it right in camera
when translated means "I don't know how to work computers and I can't fathom out how to use Photoshop".
Quote: Its a bit like saying
"I prefer not crashing"
when referring to driving
"I prefer not stabbing myself in the eye with a fork"
when referring to eating
"I prefer hitting the right notes"
when referring to musicians playing tunes
It doesn't need to be said, ever, because it's axiomatic.
so my reaction is.... "what a t0sser"
Not the same is it, what if its someone photographing your wedding, surely getting it right in camera is just the base line, or would you just regard them as being tossers as well

Seriously though, both statements are black & white generalisations - neither is totally correct!
unusual for you to be so way off the point Paul
Yeh my heads hurting
But I know were your coming from.
Like when you question someone over a picture, they say the like to get it right in camera, yet there`s no emotion, just nothing
awwww - too much shandy last night
send you some co-codimol down lol
ok - are there any people out there who don't like getting it right in camera?
Flip it a bit...
a few more ....
when playing snooker, most people would like to get it right - i.e. get a good safety/snooker/pot (whatever's appropriate)
when striking in football, I would prefer to score a goal
when taking a photo I prefer to get it right in camera
when cooking a meal, I prefer not to ruin it
when breathing, I prefer oxygen to be present
This all depends, right is sometimes wrong
Depends on what your doing
not the oxygen one though
I do enjoy breathing that...
Bored today Ade?
In my film days 'getting it right in camera' meant I knew what the printer's auto machines were going to spit out into that little envelope (and different labs may do different things).
In digital, 'getting it right in camera' to me means knowing what jpeg file is going to come out of the camera's processing engine for any given picture style.
Shooting raw, its meaningless because what comes out depends on how I process it - I can, however expose in a way that maximises my options: for example, ETTR goes against everything that 'getting I right in camera' means but it gives you the best option for maximising detail (if that is what you want) and it often makes a sh!t photograph if processed using a defined picture style.

yeah - mild hangover (so listless) and crap weather (so stuck inside)
I'd read this just once too often... and it always comes across a bit like "Sheldon" talking down to everyone. Everyone who has ever held a camera prefers to get it right in camera.... what they do after that is up to them, but getting a good shot is whole point of the exercise
anyway - got a few meetings today so best get off here
