I'm getting up to speed with my new Nikon D-800 - and finally got a version of Camera Raw that can open the images.

I did a quick test with 2 file sizes for the D-800 NEF files.

Uncompressed is about a 79 MB image size ---
and "LossLess" compression creates an image file about 48 MB.

My first quick look shows more noise in the "lossless" compressed image when opened in Photoshop CS6.

There may just be no "free lunch" here --- more data in a bigger file size.

It will take some big cards to handle a full day of shooting with 80MB images ...

Anyone else do this test yet? I need some time with my tripod to repeat it carefully.
