Since i`ve bought my new DSLR, i've taken the advice of the pros and shot in RAW which i can see it`s starting to occupy a lot of space ( i have more the 3000 raw files stored on my drive, in a few days i`m buy an external drive of 500GB so i guess that wouldn't have to be more of a problem). But a few days back i have started to read about the DNG file format (Digital Negative) and seams that would still be a RAW file but in a smaller size. For example i saved a RAW file in DNG format and in RAW the file had @ 14MB and in DNG @ 12MB, and saved it with photoshop's Camera Raw in Full Size with the Compressed (lossless) option selected. So my question is, what do you guys think about it? The difference between the quality of a RAW and a DNG will be "noticeable" (i'm quite a quality addict) ? Do you recommend to convert all my RAW`s in DNG or should i stick to simply store it in RAW?
