Donna, that is interesting. I don't find importing and working with the raw any more complicated than jpg. Maybe Lightroom is the reason. You can set up an import preset and have it look almost exactly the same as the jpg, with the caveat that you can change things because it is just information sitting on top of your raw file instead of being baked into the file and permanent like with jpg.
I have my neighbor using a point and shoot with Mac photos program shooting  raw. She uploads directly to facebook all the time. She is far from tech savvy. She gets confused between what is on the computer and what is on the internet. And it's "WiFive" no matter how many times I correct her.

Donna,  Congratulations on your new camera.  I have owned the D750 for several years.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine.

Comment by Donna K & Quincy on September 14, 2018 at 6:38am

Nancy, I shoot both JPeg and raw for a couple of reasons. I don't want to have to edit all my photos, when shooting Quincy I wanted a back up plan for his eyes and any blown our areas and I don't have the editing capabilities right now. When I upload photos I go through and dump the raw files that I don't need. Once I get Lightroom and learn how to use it that could change. :>)

Comment by Nancy and Georgia Brown on September 13, 2018 at 8:06pm

I would advise getting Lightroom and really learning it. Okay I’m ponitificating again.

With Lightroom there is a huge frustration issue you will need to just accept up front and dedicate yourself to tackling. Figure out the organization of your files and be consistent. Once that is done you can google almost any other issue you have and get a solution easy. I still do it when I get stuck. 

I don’t recommend shooting raw plus jpg. If you can give me a valid reason you need to have both I would be curious to hear your logic. My experience is that it is twice the files to manage and delete. The only case where I think it could be necesary is a pro photographer recording to a separate card as backup.

So sounds like Gord, LOL.

Comment by F, Calla & Luca on September 13, 2018 at 7:13pm

I do love my 750 but i hardly used it with our awful summer weather. I think you will really like it.

Comment by Donna K & Quincy on September 13, 2018 at 6:31pm

@Nancy, I plan on doing all of your lessons. I do shoot JPeg fine and raw but I really do need to get Lightroom. My Elements13 doesn't recognize the new camera. I just remembered I bought a neutral density filter when I bought the 50mm but I don't remember what I did with it. I swear I could hide my own Easter eggs.

Comment by Nancy and Georgia Brown on September 13, 2018 at 6:26pm

I’ve only heard great things about that camera. New cameras are so much fun. 

Have I pontificated recently about the advantages of shooting raw and using Lightroom?  A new camera is a great excuse to learn new techniques. If you don’t recall please read any of my many previous posts. 

Comment by Donna K & Quincy on September 13, 2018 at 6:19pm

If I don't get any good photos we'll all know it's the photographer not the camera. The 50mm is so tiny. My 150-500mm is so heavy (as you found out Cheryl) that I hate using it. Gord asked me why I didn't get a lighter lens but when I told him the lens I wanted was $8000 he told me to get used to the tripod.

Congratulations, Donna. Enjoy!
