6. Distortion

The comparison of photos saved as RAW and JPEG files at the same time shows that these former feature a bit narrower field of view. What’s interesting it is difficult to say whether or not the body tries to correct distortion because in the RAWs it amounts to 0.29% and in the JPEGs – to 0.28%. Both values are in perfect accordance within the margin of error which, in this case, is about 0.1%. Even if distortion correcting algorithms didn’t work in this case (they couldn’t have worked because there was no reason for it as the distortion at this level is imperceptible in photos), the image was slightly cropped just in case anyway.
