Thanks Mike!

Do the Raw files have significantly more detail than capturing as a
jpeg? I am wondering here about wall portraiture specifically.


There should be the maximum amount of detail the camera can deliver, saved as Raw.

It's difficult to make a full comparison since you can't (at least I can't) view a screen filling Raw image. But saving your raw file as a 16 bit tiff and opening it in Photoshop should be far superior to a file saved with any degree of jpg compression. I have only printed one of the file that was originally raw. It looks great but then so did most of the ones I shot with my S1.
