!HELP! RAW Photo Vs. PT ON

Ok as the title says i need a little help here guys...

 

Lets just pass that all check this check that stuff, because im pretty familiar with cameras and its settings...

 

What i dont know is...do you guys shoot in PT On and RAW On or PT Off and RAW On or Pt On and RAW Off?

 

I tried to have both settings ON and PT set to my specs which give best quality possible...and RAW also ON and my pictures have a filesize of just 2-4MB ?

 

I know this isnt even close to normal RAW file size...and i also noticed my camera has alot of grain when shooting directly towards sun or in bright daylight...and i dont think my software recognizes RAW mode set to ON...

 

 

As far as i understand normal JPG file is around 2-4MB fully compressed 4x3 12MP...so RAW should have atleast double or triple that size...

 

 

Please anyone..HELP ME OUT :(

Re: !HELP! RAW Photo Vs. PT ON

Why would RAW be compressed? :) Isnt the purpose of RAW to be saved UNCOMPRESSED ?

Re: !HELP! RAW Photo Vs. PT ON

I shot RAW, PT without RAW and HDR now..

 

and the most MB has the pic which is RAW Off and HDR Off. So only PT On pic is the bigest filesize.

 

I used same preset on all 3 pictures
