Frankly, a simple ‘IT’S HERE!’ probably would have done, because unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few months, you’d have known precisely what the ‘IT’ referred to. I am…

is raw dead?

Most people call them RAW files; Nikon calls them NEFs. Either way, they are the equivalent of a ‘digital negative’, a half-way stage in the image-editing process where you don’t yet have a finished image, but you still have access to all the colours, tones and data captured by the camera’s sensor. All Nikon D-SLRs give you the choice of shooting RAW files or JPEGs – or indeed both at the same time. JPEG images are ready to use straight away. You can print them, email them, and show them on your computer or tablet, but you have to leave it to your camera to process your images using the settings you chose when you took the picture. With RAW files, you get to do the processing, not your camera. This…
