On my D3 I go to the Shooting Menu> NEF )RAW) Recording and set the camera to record 14 bit mode. Come out of the menu and go back into it again and it's still showing 14 bit mode highlighted.

If I then turn the camera off and back on again and go into the same menu setting it's now highlighting Type as off with the 14 bit option underneath not now highlighted.

Is the camera still shooting in 14 bit mode at this point (as I don't know how to check if it is) as I was expecting the 14 bit mode to still come up as being highlighted?

Just a bit confused at this point; it's my age you know.
