    When a photo is processed as a RAW image file type, what are its advantages?

    • A.

      You don't have to process it

    • B.

      You can easily edit the photo

    • C.

      It has better quality

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. You can easily edit the photo
    Explanation
    When a photo is processed as a RAW image file type, it allows for easy editing of the photo. RAW files contain all the original data captured by the camera sensor, providing more flexibility in post-processing. This means that adjustments such as exposure, white balance, and color grading can be made without sacrificing image quality. Additionally, RAW files have better quality compared to other file types as they are not compressed or processed by the camera's software. Therefore, choosing the RAW file format provides the advantage of easy editing and better overall quality.

    Correct Answer
    C. You need to process it
    Explanation
    RAW image files need to be processed before they can be used or viewed, which can be considered a disadvantage compared to other file types. This processing involves converting the raw data captured by the camera's sensor into a viewable image format, such as JPEG or TIFF. This extra step adds to the workflow and requires additional time and effort. However, the advantage of RAW files is that they offer more flexibility and control during the editing process, allowing photographers to make adjustments without losing image quality.

    What does a higher ISO do?

    • A.

      Become brighter and noisier

    • B.

      Become brighter and "faster"

    • C.

      Become Darker and cleaner

    • D.

      Become darker and "slower"

    Correct Answer
    A. Become brighter and noisier
    Explanation
    A higher ISO setting on a camera increases the sensitivity of the image sensor to light. This allows the camera to capture more light in darker environments, resulting in a brighter image. However, increasing the ISO also introduces more noise or graininess to the image, especially in low light conditions. Therefore, a higher ISO setting makes the image brighter but also introduces more noise, making it noisier.

    If you want to shoot at a hawk, what ISO level should you have it on?

    • A.

      A higher ISO: 400

    • B.

      A neutral ISO: 300

    • C.

      A lower ISO: 200

    • D.

      An even lower ISO: 50

    Correct Answer
    A. A higher ISO: 400
    Explanation
    A higher ISO level of 400 is recommended when shooting at a hawk because it allows for a faster shutter speed, which is necessary to capture fast-moving subjects like birds in flight. A higher ISO also increases the camera's sensitivity to light, making it easier to capture a well-exposed image in situations with less light. This is especially important when shooting outdoors where lighting conditions can vary. Therefore, a higher ISO level of 400 would be ideal for capturing a hawk in action.
