It seems that every day we hear about a new camera that shoots Raw or has a special Log recording mode. Plus there are a number of different “Uncompressed” recorders out there as well.

Additionally, it can send out a Raw signal to special Raw recording devices. These terms aren’t new but they can certainly be a bit confusing. In order to help clear things up, I put together an article called “Formats Explained,” which is in the latest edition of HDVideoPro magazine – you can read it online here.
