I received my new, larger SD card today. I ordered it a couple weeks ago when woot.com 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?
