Sequence #4 Backed off the shutter here by habit I think,... used to anticipating the the D810 buffer filling up. Wished I had laid on it and captured my son's throw down to 2nd.

I've really been finding that the D500 RAWS are plain ugly, lots of work, and just not fun to work with. Not with LR6 anyways. I've been finding that just tweaking the SOOC jpegs a little has been giving me better results.

I haven't shot jpeg since the D40 days. :rolleyes:

If you are not needing to recover a lot of highlight and shadow detail or otherwise needing to bring out the best in your images for clients, just continue shooting the jpegs if you're happy with them. For doing portrait work, I am happy to work with the raw files. It doesn’t really make a difference to me if the raw files are dull because it doesn't take much for me to bring out the colors and vibrancy. If I get it close in camera my standard edit is under 5 minutes.

This was just a few seconds, part of a batch edit I did. I could have brought out the colors more but this was my editing style for this event.

I've always shot raw I just don't like how the D500 files behave while editing them.

Out of every body I've shot with the D500 lack the least push/pull manipulation in Raw format.

I guess I struggle to find the magic in these files.

I can understand your sentiments. If I had the money for the D850 and respective lenses for it, my D500 would get dusty. The D500 has its fortes but overall image quality, especially under certain lighting conditions, is not one of them. My system works well with what I need it to do but I've learned not to push it beyond its capabilities.

Well whatever you are doing is working and I've seen great photos from this body from others(and myself).

Part of it is I just can't get decent weather to shoot in and I think this is where my personal issue lies. I shot FF for so long(D610, canon 6d, D810) the small DX sensor just cannot handle the lower light/cloudy conditions. The files fall a part fast.

I'm also having an issue with the display image on the LCD not representing the actual image coming out of the camera. I think I'm shooting fine until I get home and get them on my PC. So I have work to do in post usually with under exposed photos.

I may just have to look for different software. I don't think LR6 plays well with these Raws.
