shooting raw allows the camera to store the raw image being captured by the sensor, instead of doing some processing and storing into jpeg.

this way, u can better adjust things like white balance and exposure.

if u dont really like to do processing, then you should shoot in jpeg instead. also its sometimes very time consuming to do post processing. imagine u shoot ur entire holiday in RAW, amounting to about a few hundreds of images. think u will process till u sianz.... :p though there is always scripting to help bulk processing....

also RAW images are bigger in size, hence they will fill up storage cards and camera buffer faster.

i shoot in RAW+L using the D70s. so i got both. then i will see how the jpeg turn out.

RAW means the picture is stored in the card as how it was taken.

Jpeg involves compression by the camera to it's settings and capabilities. Thus it may not give the best picture. ;)

if like that say, then if there is a under exposed pix, then i take in raw format, i can change it when i get to a computer?

You can save it.. only if it's slightly under-exposed. I believe you can recover it by about 1 stop or so....
