Yeh, but as long as we keep laughing about it, we should come out of this alive

Thanks.
I took a couple of RAW just of my dog who has a lot of white in him. When i looked at the photo on camera some white bits are flashing black. Is this normal? never tried RAW before so don't know, lol.
Thanks for the link too and i hope to come out alive Joe, lol.

That's a setting in the camera that tries to tell you what may be over exposed or what is called "blowout".

You can read more about it here - near the bottom

Yup, as Jimmy Buffett sang,
"if we couldn't laugh, we'd all go insane"

eysha - I have not tried RAW because it seems too much work to post process so much, plus RAW files are huge, which takes up memory space and slower to record when taking shots.

Thanks Clint, i will read that.
Saly i haven't downloaded the couple i have taken in RAW yet and if it takes too much time i won't bother. Probably good for special shots though so i might investigate a bit further, lol. just to learn a bit more.

BTW, there is a setting that lets you save a RAW and a JPEG at the same time. Don't bother with it. The JPEG is a very reduced image quality and useless.

You can take both at the same time using the RAW+JPEG setting, but the JPEG image is reduced to "Standard" rather than "Fine". So it's really not worth saving both (in my opinion....)
