February 2011 Update: Nikon has announced the D800,it’s update to the very successful D700. While the camera hasn’t hit the street yet, many users have noticed that the RAW files size has jumped from 12MB on the D700 to 35MB on the D800 with no option for a smaller RAW file like Canon offers.
Just to give Nikon users an idea of what you can get from a sRAW file, I’ve linked the full sized high resolution conversion of the football photo from above. Details about the sRAW file that the conversion was made from. The image was made on a Canon 5Dmk2 in the sRAW mode. The sRAW file created was 17.0MB.
