Shooting RAW will give you a more options in PP (post processing). You have more to do, and that is a bit of a blessing and a curse. I remember one occasion shortly after I switched over to shooting RAW, I was going to a local marsh area to test a new lens that I had picked up the night before. While walking to the towers that I had planned on shooting from I heard a loud roaring coming up the river and saw the rescue hovercraft approaching, I pulled out my gear and set up shooting, click...click...click, what unfolded in front of me was a complete rescue from a point of land across the river. Wow what a day, I had some great shots of this really rare event, now to chimp the pictures, to my horror I discover that I had left the WB set to fluorescent from the test shots I took the night before. When I got home I was happy to discover that I had traded the ability to store a bazzilion pictures on a card for a one button correction of the WB mistake. Ever since then I've shot raw unless I need speed when shooting action scenes, some cameras will shoot a little faster in JPEG mode. As for the more work, look for software that will let you batch process, copy the changes from one image to another. I don't use ViewNX enough to know if it has a batch mode, but CaptureNX and the Adobe software do batch processing. Most of the programs let you try before you buy, so you can see if it''s your cup of tea.
Will shoot for fame...fun...food... a heck I'll shoot anytime anywhere.
