I just upgraded to the 7D and I am noticing the RAW files are enormous! Loading them from the card, even previewing on my computer has become time consuming. I want to use the smaller raw files, but then I feel I'm not taking full advantage. I had a 30D before, and the 8mp I found to be just the right amount of res. the mRAW is about 10mp on the 7D. I was thinking of using that. I guess my question is, am I gonna miss anything (haven't missed anything in the past)? not using the standard RAW and say, just using the mRAW?
What do you all use, and please explain. Thanks.
