Hi everyone! I have been using a Sony Cybershot with a 10x carl zeiss telephoto lens - its about ten years old. Up until now, it has served me very well (and it actually still does now that it is considered my 'beater' camera and goes camping and to the beach with me) But, I really enjoy Macrophotography and my daughter ice skates and the sony just does not cut it with either anymore. So, I decided to pick up the hubby's Cannon 20D with macro lens and I have had good success with that. I recently tried the telephoto lens to shoot the ice skaters and what I saw through the viewfinder was very exciting! I got home, dumped to my computer and was so very disappointed. The shots were soft, grainy, not quite in focus. Poo. Turns out it was set to RAW mode, which my hubby loves. Apparently I hate it. I want to set to high JPEG but he is recommending against that. He says the RAW mode is the most powerful...but I don't like the photos and I don't know how to post process very well. What are your suggestions as fellow photographers....should I try the JPEG or should I learn the post-processing process? (FYI - I am not the swiftest of learners with megaprograms like photoshop) Any suggestions for the beginner to real DSL photography would be appreciated!! Thanks!
