I never knew that about raw bumping down the quality of jpeg. That's really good to know, though it makes me less inclined to ever try it.
I'll go to the snow in a couple of weeks and experiment with the snow scene function, my impression is that it changes exposure and white balance on it's own which I guess are the 2 major things I need to worry about with snow.
I don't think I ever got an answer on using a polarizing filter on cloudy or rainy days. I get that it will be helpful on glaciers and snow on sunny days. But should I use it if it's gray outside? Thanks!

loren-

I had specifically addressed the Polarizer previously. Perhaps a bit more discussion would be helpful.

A polarizer is used to reduce glare that is typically found in brightly lighted photo environments. Therefore, it would not be very effective cloudy, rainy, or gray days. Also, please keep in mind that over exposing in snow is tricky as it is dependent on the amount of snow within the photo environment.

Oh, thanks, that makes it clear. Only sunny days it is.
