Well, that isn't exactly true either. I was able to see the difference at a 1:1 pixel view on my 34" 21:9 monitor, but only because I exactly knew what to look for and at a short viewing distance, like a meter away.

Yea but even then it’s not a big difference that it will pop out. I noticed a small difference but it’s nothing to dispute over.

I see the difference, too. Some users find it hard to admit that DNG is better than BRAW.

But you **aren't** a user -- and this rest of us actually are. There's a big difference between youtube, and the claims of youtubbers, and the reality of shooting material and looking at it. It also helps to understand the grading process, as well as basic shooting principles. Because images look different on youtube doesn't mean that braw, CNDG, Prores, h.265 etc., is the reason.

Here is the thing... It's impossible to notice the difference between DNG and BRAW on a youtube video on a phone... Simple as that...
