[LRflex] Re: Prince William's dream

Hello Alex:

I agree Alex...Jpeg images almost all....once in a while I will shoot RAW 
just to see if I can see a difference....however, I really am not into 
prolonged computer work ( I have taken up LF black and white work in 
retirement, and I enjoy the challenge without undertaking yet another 
impossible task! ) ), and so RAW is probably not "necessary".  I can do 
almost everything I need to do in the very easy Nikon Picture Project 
program.  If I need to do more serious image manipulation I'll bring the 
card to my friend who will do some more "advanced" editing before sending 
the image over to his service bureau for  enlargements and prints.

As for the R10....seriously conflicted Alex.  My gut feeling is that the 
Nikon can easily do everything that I need to accomplish.  However, with my 
R8/F9 bodies and all the Leica glass collected over the years-well, you get 
my drift.  I do shoot, develop, and print my own black and white in 35mm, 
and 120 so the gear won't be sitting unused.

By the way, I enjoy your pictures. Well done.

Elliot
