    Hi, guys! I disagree a bit about the DNG discussion you had on the show.

    If you are importing into LR from a CF card with a firewire card reader and a macbook pro (recent-ish), it really doesn’t take that much longer.

    Even if I’m taking about 2500 raw images from a shoot, I can use an automator action to convert those in an hour.

    A DNG is also about 20% smaller than a CR2 or NEF. So, if I have my field drive with CR2’s and run my action which copies and converts to DNG, I have a copy I can leave and send offsite (CR2’s on a usb drive), and a local copy (which gets backed up to the cloud).

    So, I have 3 copies of a file, less local hard drive space with the DNG, and a ‘future-proofed’ format.

    Love the show! Keep on truckin’!
