    me too. And really so far I haven't done much RAW processing, I've gotten pretty nice results with the settings I shoot with.

    Both.

    JPEG for the random snapshot stuff
    RAW for the shots that have to be just right

    If it's something gay like a bikini contest, JPG, but stuff that I know I will use in my portfolio or will need printed, RAW.

    Educate a lazy n00b that doesn't want to search for the ansa.

    What can you fix in a raw pic, that you couldn't fix in a jpg using PS etc...?

    i shoot in raw, mainly just to learn more about post-processing. lets me go back to my raw files and try something different to see what works. could always batch process to jpg without any changes i guess :dunno:

    i only shoot .jpg right now because without the raw plugin for my version of PS, RAW doesn't work. and i don't want to use lightroom right now...

    Raw + S JPG, raw to card 1 jpg to card 2

    if i'm shooting "snapshots" and get something good I can pull the raw, otherwise I can format card 1 and dump card 2 and go off web-ready JPG with no resize or sharpening just like a point and shoot. :mamoru:

    usually I dump both so I work the raws and use the jpgs as references to in-camera processing. It is possible to make an image in raw that at first looks good but then you realize the JPG looks better so you have to change a couple more things in raw. Not often though :)

    otherwise, jpeg.

    Raw + jpeg allows the best of both worlds. It's nice to have the raw file when you want total control of an image. Real World Camera Raw by Bruce Fraser is a must have if you want to learn the advantages of raw.

    Addressing chromatic aberration is a nice feature.

    I used RAW exclusively since I got my DSLR.

    :dunno: Space isnt an issue and RAW gives more room for error and better quality :squint:
