When I bought my D50, I knew nothing about RAW files. I was wondering why should I use it when I can take more than double number of pictures in high quality JPEG. So, first few weeks I didn't bother about RAW. later I could see the mistakes I was doing. Sometimes, I forget to change the WB especially while shooting indoor. The pictures I took in JPEG mode needed more time to get the natural tone. Later I read more about RAW and I could correct lot of pictures quickly which I shot in RAW format. I have a 1GB card which is enough for over 135 RAW or over 280 Large size fine JPEG.

So, I use RAW format when I am taking pictures indoors and JPEG for outdoor photos.

Well I bought a DSLR so I could change lenses and have a decent optical viewfinder. Maybe I am alone. The fact that it can do RAW is a coincidence.


What is that and what were the picture details?

It's a dragon fly. On a walk in Mallorca I came across a pond up a mountain where loads of them had just crawled out of their larvae skin so they were really dopey and I could get very close.

60mm Micro Nikkor, 1/125s f11 -0.67EV ISO 800, handheld and cropped.

Here's one next to its larva skin.
