I just shot a VERY informal gathering, and for one dining table image, in portrait format, I forgot to rotate the SB900 sideways so it was still pointing at the ceiling. So it was pointing catywampus directly at the table.

As a result, a person at the close end of the table was blown sky high, and the person across the table from her was literally in the dark.

The JPG was hopeless --- no way to get enough data out of it (except for a few people half way down the table).

The RAW file was a totally different thing. With judicious use of "Shadows" and "Highlights" in Adobe Camera RAW, I was able to pull the poor guy out of the dark, and the young lady down to looking almost fully alive. Good enough for the informal results and web page.

THANK YOU RAW!
