Re: DNG vs ARW

Yes, DNG uses lossless compression. I convert all my files to DNG when I import to Lightroom. The main disadvantage of using DNG is that some non-Adobe image processors do not recognize DNG files. A supposed advantage is that DNG files might be better supported in the future than proprietary format camera files (who knows?).

There are other advantages and disadvantages to using DNG. You might do a Google search to learn more.
