Thought this might be better in a new thread from my dead D5100 one.

First question, what’s the take on 14bit vs 12bit modes? I’ve found some stuff online, which gave more information, but also seem to confuse things more too. I’ve left it on 12bit for now, thinking about storage space while on holiday.

Only time you will notice any practical difference shooting 12 vs 14 bit is when pixel peeping really deep in shots where highlight detail can show the difference. Exposures where this is the case will be pretty rare. Even then, the difference will be hard to notice even when printing large

To which I’ll add that those differences become less noticeable as ISO is increased.
