Painterly Effect Of jpegsFrom FZ50
This 100% crop shows nicely the painterly effect of jpegs. Not all show this - the camera is capable of a great deal of detail so long as the contrast is reasonable.
The first image below is a jpeg version of an iso 200 shot. The second image is the raw image without sharpening - it's hand held from a moving boat and isn't super sharp.
The third image is the same image with fairly agressive sharpening with smart sharpen in photoshop - 300 1.5, much more than I'd normally use. While the result is really grainy at 100%, remember that this is iso 200 and from a 10 MP camera so you are looking at about an inch and a half of print here at 300 dpi for a print that is about 12X9 inches from the full image.
The last image is a 100% crop from a land based image at iso 100, with 300 .7 smart sharpen.
