RAW files from D5100
I have owned my D5100 for about three months now and like the camera. I have recently started shooting RAW plus JPEG and am very confused!
When viewing the RAW files in many apps, the RAW looks EXACTLY the same as the JPEG (same tonal qualities, contrast, etc). I have tried Capture NX2, Irfanview, FastStone, etc. Only when viewing the files in Picasa 3 do I see the obvious difference between the JPEG and the RAW files.
What am I doing wrong here? I can't do any post processing on the RAW file if it looks exactly the same as the JPEG. I know I am getting the raw files because the file properties indicate the file type and size correctly.
