Usually my DNG files take or took up around 25 - 30 Mb per shot. Now i discovered that since lately they are all around 50 Mb in size.
I think I clicked on the import dialog somewhere wrongly (?) where I was asked to keep original Raw files inside the DNG or not. But for the life of me, I cannot see where that decision is made and how to revert back to just 25 Mb DNG files without embedded RAW. Help, please.
