Oh, poor you, winter again! It really is summer here they are predictign a heatwave this week. A 8 this morning it was already 26 degrees.
You asked about RAW, I belive I do see a difference, but I cannot pinpoint what the difference is. Somehow they shots look clearer. They are much easier to convert to JPEG than I thought. But I still need to find our if I can print directly from a NEF file, do I have to change it to JPEG. I bought an image tank holding 40GB, for Burma,so I thought I might as well use it. I think I will shot RAW in Burma. if I can put my finger on the difference, I'll let you know.
Take care and stay warm,
