Not so Grey After All

Although I set the 1200D (converted for full spectrum photography) to take B/W photos it appears that it stores all the colour information in the RAW files. This can be seen depending which program is used to process them. None of these have been adjusted for exposure or contrast, etc..

The photo as it will be seen on the camera's screen:


When pasted in Dramatic Black and White:


When pasted in Affinity Photo before processing as B/W:


And when pasted in Simply HDR:


Lots of possibilities from the same photo.


  1. I had no idea that it would store the full data set. Interesting ...

    1. Wilma: I assume that is what a RAW file is about. It must contain something which tells most photo viewing programs to show the photo in B/W. It seems that only programs which are designed to alter / modify them have access to the colour data.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
