Keep in mind that the 'Highlight blinkies' on the camera's LCD are a JPG version of the RAW file and don't have the same wide DR as the RAW files (which there is no way to view in-camera, the JPG is a substitution, thus the need to learn to use the Histogram).

The histogram is based on the JPEG as well, so looking at it doesn't really offer anything over the blinking highlight indicator.

The histogram is way more precise; over time I can relate what the histogram is telling me and what the RAW files results will be in a highly predicable way.
