I have a basic question and I am embarrased that I should know the answer. But I want to be certain!! If I shoot the D800 with the options for NEF and JPEG, is the JPEG image downsampled when it goes on the SD card? I know that downsampling is resizing the image to a smaller size...and I know that saving an image in JPEG is saving it to a smaller (compressed) size. SO... is a JPEG image on the D800 SD card already a downsampled image when I copy it to my PC, and therefore I need not do anything further in order to benefit (noise reduction) from downsampling?
