RAW and jpeg file saving query?

So I was just trying photo backup options for my upcoming holiday and was hoping to save them to the iPad Pro, however I'm having issues. It's fine if you shoot jpeg, and it's fine if you shoot RAW, but if you shoot RAW and jpeg the photos app on the iPad only recognises the jpeg file so when you come to export it from the iPad to the computer you can only export the jpeg.

Is there a way to set Olympus cameras so that it saves the jpeg and RAW files with two different file names rather than the same name just with different extensions?

Re: RAW and jpeg file saving query?

Not to my knowledge. I do RAW and jpeg, but really only do Jpeg just in case I want to transfer to my phone...Ö.So that I can distribute quickly...ÖÖ.

Thanks. Since starting this thread I've discovered that if I import to the Mac from the iPad using Photos (on Mac) rather than image capture then it does import both the jpeg and RAW files so that's solved my issue

Re: RAW and jpeg file saving query?

I just do raw, if I want a jpeg then I can get one from the raw. Doing both seemed wasteful of expensive card space (I’m talking Canon, CompactFlash and many years ago now) and I’ve stuck with the habit. The number of times I wanted a jpeg were so minimal anyway that it simply wasn’t worth it. Might the camera let you save raw and jpegs on different cards?

I normally shoot RAW only, however since a recent experiment I have found in certain situations there are things about the EM1-II jpegs that I like and I just can't achieve with the RAW files. Lightroom in some situations seems to kind of mute whites/highlights with the .orf files and no amount of tweaking highlights, whites, contrast, clarity, camera profiles etc etc seems to be able to achieve what I see on the SOOC jpeg. I've never known this before as I've always managed to get RAWs to match jpegs 99.9% using a wide variety of different cameras and manufacturers (including previous Olympus). Whether this has been since the LR update, or whether there's something 'magic' about the jpeg engine in the EM1-II I don't know.

Re: RAW and jpeg file saving query?

I have a Flash Air Card in both my Olympus bodies. It’s not perfect (often takes two or three attempts to connect/transfer sometimes gets interrupted) but it does the job. It’s often the case that by the time I arrive home the photos are already in Lightroom. Once full Photoshop is available for iPad, I will be very tempted to get an iPad Pro for editing in the field (at the moment I use Snapseed for finishing off, post raw processing, on my ageing iPad Air 2).

Edit: Fully on topic: Flash Air doesn’t care less whether you files are raw or JPEG.

Thanks. TBH it's a bit overkill as the EM1-II has two card slots so will always have a backup, but no harm in having three

Re: RAW and jpeg file saving query?

I save RAW & JPG, as the RAW file covers the whole of the image as seen by the sensor while the JPG is cropped to my chosen ratio. Then if my my aim is slightly off, I can recompose from the RAW file.

I copy the files to a PC which has no problem storing both RAW and JPG files with the same name.

Re: RAW and jpeg file saving query?

What's "RAW"? Is it an acronym, what does it stand for?

Likewise (well Mac) but it's the backup on the iPad on holiday which was initially causing problems, until I found the solution above.

No, it just means an unprocessed file. Technically it shouldn't be capitalised like JPEG (which is an acronym for Joint Photographic Experts Group) but we all do it

Re: RAW and jpeg file saving query?

Surely - The correct term is an ORF - Oly Raw File (I think)

raw describes the type of file, ie unprocessed image data, each company then has their own type of raw file such as .ORF for Olympus, .NEF for Nikon, .ARW for Sony etc etc. Adobe tried to make a universal raw file (.dng) so that all companies used the same but no-one jumped on board.

I know, it's one of those things that bugs me. Like "shutter speed" and "graduated filters".
