RAW vs. JPG
Jun 10, 2009

I am told repeatedly in these forums to shoot in RAW to get the best pictures from my D50. So yesterday, I took the same outdoor shot (excellent light!) in NEF, and then in JPG fine. I processed the NEF shot in ViewNX, sharpened it and added "low" D-Lighting, and printed a 4x6. The print was excellent.

Then I processed the JPG shot in ViewNX, sharpened it, and printed a 4x6. An excellent print! In fact, you'd be hard pressed to see a difference. Am I doing something wrong? If I'm not going to see a difference in an uncropped 4x6, I'm going to take the easy route and shoot JPG fine.
