D600 Workflow Question
I had always just shot JPEG but decided I wasn't getting the best out of my gear. After getting some pretty poor results to start with (importing the NEF's straight into Aperture) I did some research and discovered that I should:
1) Import the NEF's into View NX2
2) Convert these files to 16 bit TIFF's
3) Import these TIFF's into Aperture 3 for cropping and minor editing
The results are fantastic - it has transformed my photography! I don't have too many adjustments to make - it's a bit slower than before, but not oppressively so.
However. . . I end up with 140MB files and I am rapidly running out of disk space. What is the best way to compress these files without losing too much information? Or should I just invest in a 1.5TB external hard drive?
Any advice appreciated!
