Most digital SLR cameras can capture photos in RAW format. This gives you much more control when editing the photos, like adjusting contrast, exposure and white balance.
But not all cameras save the same RAW data. The main difference between them is bit depth. Most beginner cameras like Canon EAOS 100D save the data in 12 bit, more advanced ones 14 bit, and most high-end cameras 16 bit. Now what is the advantage of a higher bit depth?
Do you not want to shoot in RAW at all? Do you sometimes not have the time to develop your RAW images? Here is a great guide from Revell Photography how to adjust the camera settings for better results when you avoid RAW:
It’s time for some more technical web design stuff: When you use Colorbox for overlaying content in an iframe over the main website, you might want to link to another page in this iframe. If you do this, the new page will be shown in the same iframe with the colorbox design around it. Now if this new page doesn’t fit in the iframe, this will look quite messy and won’t be usable. So you want to open the new page in the parent window, but how to do this?

Light-test.com is dedicated to those light test shoots of photo sessions to test the light and to calibrate white balance and colors. Some of them are quite funny because the people involved know that these shots won’t be exposed to public, but this site actually does that!
Reminds me of when I was developing sets of fashion shots. The model was holding the colour card and making really funny faces. Unfortunately I can’t show samples!
