I only do what the voices in my wife's head tell her to tell me to do.

*BUMP* again, because I have a question.

I'm getting a new camera with can take photos in RAW format. I'm interested to hear from anyone familiar with working with RAW files, post processing, etc.
All I know at this point is that RAW avoids any internal (camera) post-processing to produce .jpg images.  I want the least amount of filtering I can get, and be able to work with cleaning up the image where I have complete control.
Any info is appreciated.

My Nikon DSLR captures data in Raw format if you choose to use it.  It allows for more latitude in post processing as there is no processed data in the photo you have to work with.  You already know that.

Wikipedia has a pretty good explanation of what it is right here: 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raw_image_format

Raw format uses a lot of data on your memory card and it has to be processed, usually in a proprietary program.  In the wiki article be sure to read the benefits and drawbacks and Operating System support sections.
