I'm hoping someone can break down the RAW concept for me. I've seen it explained here and there, but the explaination is always too technical for me. I barely know anything yet, so I need it really dumbed down.
So, I do gather that pictures shot in RAW are larger (file size-wise). What exactly is the benefit then of shooting in RAW? Wouldn't those pics take up a ton of space on your computer? But, if they're better quality, I guess that's the trade-off then, huh? If you shoot in RAW, do you need some crazy big memory sticks for your camera?
Again - I'm so terribly new at this. I took pics of my kids in full sun two weekends ago and was wondering why they were blown to pieces. My ISO was set at 800 - I got it mixed up (higher number for lower light, not the other way around. DUH.). :rolleyes: I appreciate your help!
