"To 14 bit or not to 14 bit, that is the question?"

Hi Guys,

After many searches here at Nikonians, I am still not sure?

Somewhere in the data, it was indicated that 14 bit would be a better choice for landscape, in saying that, there are some contradictions,

For example, it was suggested that a change from 12 to 14 bit would not have a noticeable difference?

I am trying to clear up some of these options so that I can make a more "informed choice" for my 3mth trip starting May this year,

I'm now shooting RAW for everything, (wish I had started that way from day 1),

So, should I switch over to 14 bit for a landscape session or not?

Last but not least, would I be asking for trouble if shot a mixture of 12 bit and 14 bit on the same card? or even a mixture of RAW and jpeg for that matter?

Regards,
Gary
