I think this is just me getting to grips with the camera but:- I shoot in RAW (not RAW+JPEG) and what I'm finding is that when a look at the image on the cameras LCD a lot of the time the image looks really over exposed - highlights blinking etc. This has led me to use exposure compensation and retake the shot so that it looks good on the LCD - seems to be a reasonable course of action, yes? However when I bring the pictures into my RAW converter (Apples Aperture in my case) all of the pictures that I thought were overexposed are actually perfectly exposed (not blown at all,or if so only very slightly), and the ones that I compensated for are really underexposed (bad for noise). Also when I'm shooting at say 1600 iso the camera shows no noise even zoomed right in however in Aperture noise shows. The way I understand it is that every RAW file has an embedded JPEG and I understand that this is what I'm seeing on the camera, and that is what I see the histogram and blinking highlights for - Right? The question is (and I already think the answer is yes) does the camera apply all of the image "enhancements" (High ISO noise, D-Lighting etc) to this embedded JPEG? (Obviously these "enhancements" are not applied to the RAW file) Ultimately I would like the camera to give me a more accurate preview of what I'll see in Aperture. I guess this would involve a bit of experimentation, but if anybody has any suggestions or experience with this I'll gladly listen.
