Re: D300 noise and Capture NX

Thanks for the good suggestions.

Yeah, I guess batching them to TIFFs in Capture NX would work, but it does seem to kind of defeat the point of RAW. Fluxism might be right—the JPEGs out of this camera are very very good. And I'm not sure that a "Fine" JPEG out of the D300 is that much inferior to a TIFF. But there are a number of compelling reasons to use raw—extra exposure lattitude, more detail, superior white balance, and for large prints, CS3s amazing upsampling algorithm that kicks a 5MB file up to 20MB with only minimal losses in quality.

Sigh. Is this proprietary raw format problem unique to NIkon? I haven't heard Canon or Olympus users complain that their photos look inferior or even different in Photoshop. And can we expect all other raw converters to ignore the camera settings in the future? Is that the way it's been with previous NIkon models like D200 and the D80?

Thanks again!!!
