Subject: Re: im missing the point re ACR 3.3 vs Pshop CS2

I believe the point is that ACR (or any of the other fine raw developers available) allows you to do whatever you want with the camera's raw data, rather than to employ the camera's own manipulations. Keep in mind ... this is highbit data and the only highbit data available from the camera (leastwise mine).

For example ... at the time of actual pushing the button, you may not have had the luxury of thinking about 'saturation', the 'appropriate white balance', 'noise' or 'sharpness' settings. If you lean on raw development, you do have the luxury to think about, and play with these settings. What you are left with at the time of exposure is only two settings, 'exposure' (shutter versus aperture) and ISO ... both of which you should be able to anticipate. In any case, subsequent raw developent minimizes the numerous options at that rare moment ... while allowing you to manipulate the camera data with highbit precision.
