If not, that's something I have not run into beings my newest camera body is a 40D
They do until they release a newer version, then it's f--- your camera.

When I view your pics on RP, it won't show me the EXIF data.

Shot a thunderstorm the other night and I had purples and blue/white shots. Ive noticed sometimes the color of the bolts are sometimes changed by the light pollution in the clouds and the distance of the bolts. Also whether its CC or CG lightning makes a big difference.

I would say this is startling coming from a man who has been archiving superb rail photos for decades.

How many times Ron you have complained about the poor quality of the photos you took 50 years ago with bad camera's and bad film? Well, by shooting on JPEG'S, you are doing the same thing now.

RAW keeps everything the sensor saw. Not only is this archival, it also allows the ability to truly work with your image.

The "too large" argument is so 2001. Cards and drives are so huge and cheap now there is no reason to stick with that rational.

50 years from now someone will be saying, "Darn it, if only Ron had shot this in RAW! Then it would have worked really good on our L&N Holodeck!"

No idea why my exif data is not on RP, I know it always used to be so this really puzzles me.

In fact it is here starting with this image.

Lightning itself is always white... the color cast is from the air molecules in the vicinity of the lightning bolt.

Fireworks guys (pyrotechnicians) rely on the excitation of gases released by different chemicals in a bocade when they become superheated, and that is the same principle behind different "colors" of lightning.

When processing lightning shots, you should always try to get the bolts as close to white as you can, regardless of what it does to the sky around it. That is how you know what the true color of the sky and ostensibly the molecular breakdown of the atmosphere at that point in time.
