RAW files

OK, I keep reading about shooting in RAW. What do I need to shoot in RAW/ Do I need a special camera or program to transfer from a camera. I understand the value of RAW files over JPEG for manipulating.

Re: RAW files

You just need a camera that gives the option of outputting raw files and an application that can manipulate your cameras particular raw. Many if not all modern DSLR offer the option of raw, JPEG and sometimes TIFF

Re: RAW files

Thank you, Tony W, I feared that. My older cameras don't Have RAW settings and I've recently bought a Nikon P900 for it's long telescopic range for nature shots. As I won't be selling professionally I'll let Raw go for a while. But I manipulate with Elements so might get interested later. Photography is very addictive. Get one lens, then another and buy this and that, it never stops.
