    Nikon D-300 Bracketing order

    Can someone help me out with this question I have. I normally shoot J-peg. But now I set my camera to shoot raw and J-peg at the same time. Am I assuming the raw image would be first. I only ask because I have never seen a raw image. The second part of my question is I bracket photos sometimes 5 or 7 shots. Now, shooting raw and j-peg at the same time. Which would be the firing order of these shots. Would it be raw J-peg for each setting? I appreciate any help.

    when looking at your memory card in the pc the jpeg is first then the raw for each image ...... and yes when bracketing , you will get each exposure in raw and jpeg! it will just fill up your memory card quickly!

    Re: Nikon D-300 Bracketing order

    I know this is a stupid question but I am confused. I have never seen a raw image. How does it compare to J-peg? I have a mac with I-photo... is it possible to see the difference? If shooting raw and j-peg, will the raw be the first image or the other way around? And as far as bracketing say 7 photos, will the first 7 be in raw or j-peg? I looked through the D300 manual and can't seem to clarify.

    Thank You

    I just took a few shots to see what the raw image looks like. Two of the same images. Would the raw be flat and darker than the J-peg image? I know I don't do any editing right now because I am limited with I-photo, but, I am thinking of shooting raw and j-peg, so if down the line I get editing software I can work on certain photos and do editing as needed. Does that make sense to anyone? I know the card will fill up much faster, especially with bracketing, but I carry spare cards.

    a raw image is exactly that...... raw a jpeg is processed in camera

    although to the naked eye they might look the same they are not.... and if you use software like lightroom then you can do more with raw than jpeg because jpeg has been processed already in the camera... in the camera menu you can change settings which will be saved in a jpeg!

    I used to do exactly the same until I got Lightroom 3! I've never used Photoshop though.

    basically a raw image gives you the whole file so a lot more can be done in post processing
    a jpeg removes some of the information ( to make the file smaller ) so you are limited on how much post processing you can do
    its always better imho to shoot in raw then use the software that came with your camera to convert to a jpeg that way you wont use up your memory cards so fast
