i was toying with my new D80 and took shots of my sleeping Campanion (my toy garfield). Took RAW. wah...my 2GB card show only 162 shots available only...
wah...I need a lot of cards.!
wan abit more detail, switch to jpeg large. can do this quickly by holding the img quality button near the bottom of the LCD, then rotate ur command dial.
once in lifetime shot, shoot RAW large. so if anything you set wrongly, can adjust on the computer when u get back. cuz this pix will be the precious ones you'll have little chance to shoot again.
my rationale for above is your storage constraint...
typically from my D80, RAW large is 8MB, jpeg large 4MB. that's 50% savings!
note tho.. that RAW pix come back liao MUST edit - set exposure, WB, etc.
imagine if all your pix all RAW... scary..
also, wan shoot RAW must understand the benefits, if not shoot RAW can be worse than jpeg. everyone say shoot RAW better, BUT you must know WHY you wan to shoot RAW.
niwae, RAW vs jpeg is all the rage now.. magazines, forums, etc. all debating pros and cons.. just google it, will shed alot of light on the matter.

Only RAW when I have the chance and catch a special moment.
I tried switching the camera using the dial command, can leh...fun...
Starting to love my D80....very interesting..
heh.. no la, not expert.. but seriously lotusfairy, read the manual once through. i did, n im glad i did.
cuz u learn what you can do with your D80, and use the functions to suit your purpose.
bottom line, learn equipment liao, can do alot of stuff you never knew you could.
