Hi there, I'm very very new to photography, although I own a Nikon D3300 with kitlens for around 3 years now. I'm experimenting and noticing a few things. Here goes the first: I'm using RAW image (*.NEF ) and compressed (*.JPEG) at the same time to save images to my SDCard. I noticed Jpeg being more vibrant and having deeper colours but RAW being err... more light sensitive? The shadows shown with Jpeg are simply a deep black area whereas RAW still has a lot of colour and details in it. Personally I think Jpeg is prettier, but could it be that RAW is just simply more accurate and colours simply ARE that flat, or is there some post-processing going on with Jpeg? I'm using a TN screen, non-calibrated.
