| p.2 #18 · Even more shocking news. True RAW histogram added to 5D3! |
A pertinent question for non-ML shooters, then, is, "What JPEG settings should one use to get the camera to display a histogram that is closest to the RAW histogram?" And, second, "How far off is it?"
I'm guessing that the "Neutral" picture style is the right choice, as it's intended to produce the greatest latitude for postprocessing (of JPEG files). It's low in contrast, saturation, etc. A good "experiment" for someone to perform might be to test the hypothesis that, "The neutral pictures style gives an in-camera histogram that is quite close to the actual raw histogram."
