    Shoot in RAW! :) Don't put gimmicky things in front of your lens. Shoot a white card and click white balance in raw. It takes 2 seconds, and you can batch 1000s of pictures in a few seconds.

    The RAW files are there...but some programs won't see or recognize them. Use the software that came with your D70s. Or...just drag the files over from the camera/card. When you plug in the camera or card, it should show up on your computer as a remote drive...you should be able to open that up and drag & drop the files to where you want them on your hard drive.

    If you don't have a card reader, I suggest getting one. They are less than $20 and they save your camera batteries and keep you from having your camera tethered to the computer.

    Yes, RAW images are huge...and they take slightly longer to edit but there are many benefits.
