Ok, the subject title is kinda lame... Definitely 16-bit has a lot more colours. But is it noticeable compared to 8-bit? Not sure if this has been discussed before...
...but I notice that whether I choose 8-bit or 16-bit when I convert my RAW image into Photoshop, I can't tell the difference. Or even when I convert a 16-bit image to 8-bit in Photoshop, the change is not noticeable!
So do you guys use 16-bit or 8-bit? Why is there so much hype about 16-bit? Good in theory but may not offer so much benefit in practice?
How about printing.... Does a 16-bit image look more vibrant or punchy compared to 8-bit? Problem with 16-bit is that jpg is not available and fle size is twice as large.
Pls chip in!!
