    With modern digital cameras, you can almost always fix an underexposed photo.

    An overexposed photo, one that has any of its channels 'blown', can't be fixed. At least, the areas that are blown can't be recovered. You may be able to salvage the image by cropping.
    Helps the process if you are shooting in RAW and not jpeg files.

    Raw is fine, I use it often, but a lot of 'fishing' cameras don't support raw.
    Today is always the first day of the rest of your life.
    Use it wisely.

    Its essential that my cameras shoot in raw, there's just so much more information on raw files. I picked up my small point and shoot camera used for a very reasonable price, it shoots raw and when it does take a bath I'm not out to much money.

    That's all I ever shoot in. A person can fix so many things afterwards with raw that they can't with a jpeg. Expose it a half to a full stop under and you can do just about anything with it other than fix a bad focus. jpeg, not so much... Well worth finding a camera with this option.
