hey, is there any advantage in taking an image shot in 8 bit jpeg and converting it to a 16 bit file for editing it, or is it a waste of file size?
thanks

its pretty much a waste if you are starting from 8-bit .

a total waste.

however, while working on the file, you want to be saving it
in some LOSSLESS format and then do the final re-jpeg at the end.

Well, it is of course much better to start with 16bit but I think there is a benefit to convert it to 16bit before you edit it. The image itself will not improve but any filters you apply will have better colour resolution.

not a waste at all, any editing you do will have smoother tonality then if you did it in 8 bit. That said its better to capture 12/16 bit data then 8 bit.
