Just got hit with the realization that shooting uncompressed RAW
+ Fine JPG takes up a WHOLE LOT OF STORAGE SPACE on my hard drive!!!
An uncompressed raw file of a simple bird photo w/out much detail is
15.3 MB and a fine JPG is 3.2 mb. What a difference!!!
I'll try to turn my astonishment into a question for those of you in the know:
On my D200, if I shoot compressed raw with basic/normal JPG will the detail in the images be that noticeable?
I would like to continue to shoot raw + jpg if I could to try to eliminate some post processing work.
Any opinions or suggestions would be appreciated'
Thanks
Rich
