Took a bunch of pictures on vacation (Manhattan), and used the 5100 extensively for the first time. I went jpeg fine but thought I would try the RAW + jpeg fine for quite a few. Now that I am home and going through all these I am confused. I thought at this setting I would get two (2) pictures of each shot, which I did get. Naming nomenclature is:
DSC_1111.jpg and the second is DSC_1111 (05).jpg When I pull these pic's up in viewNX2 they bothshow as 6 bit JPG's. No indication of RAW, cannot do the RAW adjustment's, white balance etc.

So I need to be educated, have to admit it. LOL going through the manual told me nothing. I am guessing that the file with the parenthesis DSC_xxxx (xx).jpg would be the Raw, as its numbers (xx)correspond to my shooting.
