Hi, I currently have the free software, ViewNx, that came with my D5000. Can someone explain what's in the Tiff data? As I understand tiff is not compressed unlike jpg. After I make changes in ViewNx and export as tiff, what do I lose since it's obviously not raw anymore? There's a choice of 8 bit or 16 bit but my camera only captures 12 bit so it seems that 16 bit is adequate.
