I know, in the underwater events (world Championsh ip, and nationals contest), whe ust have to use jp g...but if you have an Excelent machine, You can c hnage a lot of thinks underwater, and modify the o riginal shot....

But to print, to put o n FB, web sites, to magazines..... your opinion is , use the jpg file form the camera, or use the Raw and then change to get a better image ??????

I think the final result that Nikon is able to offer with the double exposure photos is great, but my personal opinion is that they are too artifacted and hopefully, sooner or later they will be banned from photo contests...
Because I never participated in UW Photo Contest and NEVER will, I always shoot RAW. That is either outside with my Nikons or UW with my FUJI. Unfortunately the 2nd conversion program is slow and complicated!Pity all RAW formats are not compatible...
Thank you for your sharing,here is an amusing thing to enjoy with you,you could have a look.

I agree!!! RAW gives you a lot of options!!! It's like being in a dark room!!!! :)

Absolutely use the RAW as primary format, when it's possible.
So, if you need a lighter format for contest or for internet, you can change in jpg.
But if the original file is already in jpg you loose a lot of information about the shot you have taken and often you can't manipulate it (especially about shadow and high lights).
Nowadays the Purists say that the shot must be as it comes out of the camera... well the jpg is not as it comes out of the camera... it is already compressed so the camera apply some corrections and algorithms... But many years ago we used to do the same with film cameras ... try to think... we chooses this or that film, and shot them and then print them in this or that lab because they gave different results... So definitely RAW and Photo editing which it is the modern Black room!!! So even the purists will be satisfied!!! :)
