What's the difference in three choices of raw file sizes? I'm in my car and can't really check the forums.

Usually it is either a RAW or a RAW + JPEG, you don't really give enough details to know for sure.

I'm sorry... Speaking about raw raw1 or raw2. (or something along those lines). File size is different, get smaller, wondering about quality and ability to manipulate white balance etc

The difference is resolution, number of pixels, and therefore file size, of course. The lower res versions can be edited just like a full sized RAW.

No, I don't see the point, but I am only dealing with 10 MP.

If you had a 1d4 or 7d and wanted to speed up your processing it might make a lot of sense, especially if you're never going to print huge from the raw file.
