Should you add visual punch to your shots in-cam­era, or use im­age soft­ware later?

Australian T3 - - STATE OF THE ART -

Most photography purists would ar­gue that you’re bet­ter off shoot­ing a ‘Raw’ im­age – ie one that’s un­com­pressed and hasn’t had a lot of pro­cess­ing forced on it by the cam­era – and then tweak­ing your shot in edit­ing soft­ware later. How­ever, there’s long been a trend of man­u­fac­tur­ers of­fer­ing dig­i­tal ef­fects within the de­vice it­self, which can be ap­plied ei­ther be­fore or af­ter the shot is taken. Gen­er­ally speak­ing, the best re­sults are achieved by us­ing soft­ware like Adobe Pho­to­shop, where you can take your time ex­plor­ing the vast ar­ray of ef­fects and tools. How­ever, in-cam­era fil­ters are good for those in a rush, or who don’t take their photography too se­ri­ously.
