Day 28 – Happiness

I received my new, larger SD card today.  I ordered it a couple weeks ago when had a sale on them – a sale I couldn’t pass up.  I have been using my 1 GB card for a long time and have been happy.  But, recently I began shooting RAW.  Sounds kind of risque, I know.

Because there are a lot of situations where I do not have control over the light, I have found that shooting RAW allows me greater flexibility when fixing the exposure.  There are lots of great reasons for doing it, and I won’t pretend I know all of them.

I decided I needed a larger card though because shooting RAW creates larger files.  When shooting high quality JPG, I could get almost 250 shots – but shooting RAW puts it at about 50 shots.  Digital photography spoils us, doesn’t it?  I mean, I’m complaining about 50 shots.

Regardless, I’m happy….it’s the simple things in life, isn’t it?
