thx for the great other options I know that there is always a better mouse trap because there will always be a person in need of a freebee as in me :G spent a lot of coinage on my equipment....But I do have a question..What is the main benefit of shooting in RAW...I know that there is no lost of quality or compression in a RAW file and you can correct exposure but most all other tweaking can be done in say photoshop or paint shop pro... any feedback is app...:G

there are software trials of bibble that takes raw nef files

there may be other progs shareware or freeware that others have found ok
