Both jpeg and RAW photo file formats are good these days, but they are very different. Now that we are adding more video into our everyday imaging, we realize that there is no RAW for video. Ouch. So, when is it a good idea to use RAW, when is it best to shoot in JPEG, what about shooting both at the same time? The answers depend all on you, your camera, your camera skills, and what you need to shoot. To explore the best options for today’s growing hybrid image maker, we’ve assembled a panel of Hybrid Heroes from discovermirrorless and invited special guest Jared Polin from FroKnowsPhoto to join us for a look at this sometimes passionate subject from different photographic angles. Not familiar with Jareds photo work? Take a look here. Ringleader and photo technology knucklehead Will Crockett hosts this 35 minute Hybrid Hangout video featuring Jared, Marlene Heilema, Giulio Sciorio, Carol Schlintz, and Bill Burkholter to help you be a smarter photographer.
Will Crockett, commercial hybrid photographer, photo technology developer, and webTV personality is focused on learning how to master hybrid imaging. The skillful blend of photo+video+audio is clearly the future of photography, but how do we shoot and shape and share and sell these hybrid "eProducts"? Dunno, but with Will Crockett as the technical genius and unstoppable force behind this transition from shooting still photos into creating pictures with depth and dimension we will surely figure it out! : )
Will is an open, honest, bright guy that shares what he learns here on this website about hybrid, eProducts, mirrorless cameras, and all the wonderful software tools that allow us to make better, smarter images for share or the sell.
For years, non-pro photographers and pros alike have seen Will's videos, gone to his fun live events, and learned how to be a smarter photographer.
Take a look at Will's current (and classic) images at willcrockett.pro, his consulting work for clients big and small at CrockettCo.com, and the great info on hybrid eProducts and mirrorless cameras on hybridphoto.pro, and of course his premium videos at thephotochannel.pro.
Will is credited with the construction of the Lumix Luminary talent team, and the Fujifilm Elite Talent team, and is our "coach" of the Hybrid Heroes.
