Thread: HD Photo, the next JPEG?

  1. #1

    Default HD Photo, the next JPEG?

    The HD format should permit, according to Microsoft, to offer better quality pictures, with a better compression ratio than JPEG.

    Time to save our photos in the new format?

    Microsoft said similar things about wma compared to MP3. I still find that MP3 sounds closer to uncompressed than wma, yes, even for the same bitrate. There are certain audible artifacts still present.

    Sorry, where photos are concerned, I'm not taking Microsoft words as the bible, holy grail and the holy truth without reactions from other sectors in the photography industry as well as the manufacturers.

    I'm still sticking to old .jpg till it had proven to the world that it offers significant advantage.

    Microsoft told all manufacturers to work on & invest in their 'Play for Sure' and guess what happened?
