it's hard to go back.

I still recall my excitement when I bought the D80 in mid 2007 and downloaded the CNX trial version that came with it.

Once I started paying with u-point tools I never went back to jpeg shooting. Later I learned about WB control, then HLs and LLs recovery tools became available and RAW became even more relevant.

If you test recovering shadows or HLs with jpegs and raws you will see the difference. WB, of course, is the single most important reason to shoot RAW.

Good luck! (But View NX is just a converter, no actual PPing capabilities like CNX2 or other PP softs).

Great post!

You are so right! Back when I first got a D40 and Capture NX2 came out I was hooked on raw and playing with every setting in CNX2. It"s amazing at how correcting white balance and balancing a histogram can take a good picture and make it superb in post processing. I was hooked!
