Printing directly from Capture NX2
That is in principle shouldn't taking a JPEG shot and printing should be identical to taking the shot in Raw and printing it as long as no editing was done?
No, the raw file is not an image file, like a 'jpg' is, and without the necessary processing will likely print tonally flat, dim, and somewhat off in colors.
The raw file will need to be post-processed to make it look like much.
