    P7700 I think.

    But didn't LenShepheard say that it was a different type of Raw file from the normal .NEF?

    Yes I did - even though my name is different Smile - the P7700 is NRW.
    It seems NRW is OK for global adjustments similar to those in Nikon's free View NX2 - but for any local adjustment in Capture NX2 or other software the file, according to the instruction manual, has to be first converted to jpeg.
    8 bit jpeg is not the same as 14 bit NEF Sad
    I understand (but cannot confirm) the RAW format used in the Canon G series also has to be converted to jpeg to be accepted by other software.

    Sorry Len you are wrong on that one, the Canon S and G series (well G10 onwards and S90 onwards at least) all produce RAW file formats that can be edited just like their DSLR series. so you can edit them in Photoshop RAW editors, Capture 1 and of course DPP without having to throw away bits and make a JPEG. They turn up as CR2 files.

    Its why long term pundit Thom Hogan had Canon not Nikon compacts before he went to m4/3 for portable camera solutions.

    Thanks for the detail.
    Unless you use Nikon Capture this makes the current Canon G compacts the better better option for "serious" post processing.
    The compact advantage to me is decent A3 quality.
    m4/3 is better but likely over 1,500 with some useful lenses in the package. A good DSLR system is even better image quality wise but often more expensive.
