A beautiful capture (if tomorrow's is even better, we're in for a real treat!)! The colours and focus spot on, beautifully sharp from wing tip to wing tip! Smile

(It might be worth asking your question in the forums - someone there will know the answer and be pleased to help you!)

Nice shot Harvey. If you shoot in raw and either save as a jpeg or shoot in raw and jpeg you will be able to view the jpeg shots on your laptop and computer.

All canon SLRs come with some software called DPP (digital photo professional) which you can convert RAWs to JPEGs. Defualt computer programs don't let you view RAWs so you have to go through the whole converting process. Or you could shoot in RAW and JPEG at the same time so you can see what you've shot on the computer, but this takes up A LOT of memory. Hope this helps.

Nice shot. You might consider flipping it upside-down so the butterfly's in its normal orientation. The background looks OK that way round as there's no really obvious 'this way up' to it and it doesn't scream of being lit from below when upside-down, either.

I shoot RAW+JPEG. You could use Canon's 'ZoomBrowser' software to view the RAWs but, last time I tried it, it wouldn't let you view the files at 100% zoom (despite the name!) without converting to TIFFs or JPEGs, which is completely useless as you can't quickly use it to determine which shots are sharp. Maybe recent versions of the software are better... You can download the latest version of ZoomBrowser and Digital Photo Professional [lilnk=]from Canon[/link]. Select 'English' and your operating system to make the huge list go away. Smile For some reason the MacOS version of ZoomBrowser is called ImageBrowser.

If you're going to be shooting RAW anyway, RAW+JPEG isn't that much more disk-hungry. My EOS 400d produces JPEGs of about 3.7Mb and RAWs of about 12.8Mb. Your 550d has more pixels so will produce larger files than that but I would expect the ratio of RAW+JPEG taking up about 30% more space than just RAW to hold.
