Oh wow, the D200 can save a RAW and JPEG Fine?

The D50 only supports RAW + JPEG Basic.

hello, inspired by the extended creativity of RAW that is proposed here, I decided to try my hand at RAW with my D50. I must say, it gives me greater control over the images!

I have a question however, every one of my pictures in raw has this strange black band running on the right hand edge of the pictures. Is this usual?

Here are some pictures of it with that black band

Thank you for your help

PS. hmm why don't the images embed?

Probably there to counter act the White Band that runs around the rest of the images...:?

Hey, when you took those pics in Raw format, were you using fine and small, medium, or large settings?

You cannot select quality settings (fine, basic, etc) or file size (small, medium, etc) when shooting in RAW.

oohh, just a side note, these were converted to jpeg because they wouldnt let me upload a RAW file, but the essential problem still remains there

What problem? I didn't see a problem. Looks like your image processing program framed the image in some manner. Looks like some sort of preferences problem

I have found Rawshooter Essentials to be what I think the best RAW converter by far.

http://www.pixmantec.com/products/ra...essentials.asp

If you take time to adjust the D50`s settings ,use the histogram and highlight clipping preview,and workout your Raw Workflow and stick to it, your processing time will greatly reduced.
Firstly I back up my Raw files to a spare drive straight from camera

my workflow in Rawshooter

white balance correction (W.B.) the D50 does a good job of this left to Auto
Correct Exposure (E.V.)
Adjust contrast,brightness,saturation

I then batch save the images, either jpeg or tiff.(If I`m doing a job for a client I will supply them with both Jpeg and Tiff files)

in photoshop , I retouch , resize and then sharpen in that order
I do all my sharpening in photoshop, using a sharpening action I have.
This method works for me , it may not for you.If you stick to your workflow it becomes second nature thus saving time.

I would like some input on other peoples Raw workflow

thanks

TD
