The Flashlight Test

No.3310145 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
https://kenrockwell.com/tech/flashlight-test.htm

Nothing pisses me off like morons putting a flashlight up to their lenses and being aghast when they don't look crystal clear.

Look, guys if you can hold a lens up to a standard house light and not see any noticeable scratches or haze these things are not going to have a noticeable impact on the final images taken with the lens. If you hold a flashlight up to a lens, it will show you everything potentially wrong with a lens but also will greatly over-exaggerate these flaws because you are putting way more light through the lens than even the sun will on a standard sunny day.

Dear /p/.

Thanks to your previous advices on camera and stuff, Im training at getting swloly better. But I still make mistakes and because of this, I would like to kindly ask few questions:

1) Do I really need to use RAW for best results? Im doing JPGs so far but I heard few times that I really should do photos in RAW instead so I wont lose quality while cropping or modifying the image.
2) What software should I use? Basically half of the internet talks only about Photoshop but its really costly and Im not professional photographer that earns money from this. I do own Corel Aftershot 3 (not Pro version) that I bought at one bundle once but for example it prevented me from changing color temperature in JPG file (allowing this with RAW only). I heard opinions that Corel Paintshop is very good alternative to Photoshop but I would rather want to ask first before spending money. I tried using Gimp (2.4) before but I found it rather uneasy to use (problems with cropping for example).
3) I kinda cant figure out what Im doing wrong with light amount. Due to my experiences with compact cameras before (few months ago I bought my first DLSR camera), Im really afraid of rising ISO over 100-200 but still when I was reading book about photography, author was showing photos with settings like ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/400s while with my Nikon D5300 and 18-105mm f/4-5.6 lens I can go 1/200s with such settings, even in daylight but usually with ISO 100 at day I dont go shorter than 1/100, usually 1/60. I dont use manual mode yet, either A or S. I dont know if this is related with camera own settings but so far I rarely had time to think over settings for manual mode, birds dont wait for me to setup for example and Im constantly afraid that people I ask for posing wont stand for long and will quickly get impatient. Is this because of my lenses being poor quality or its the camera setting?

Read the sticky first!

Post anything gear related, cameras, lenses, filters, bags, tripods, other accessories (clothing, fancy straps, Leica) etc...
Post your question here, instead of starting a new thread about which lens to buy or what are the best beginner cameras.

And don't forget, be polite!
