Please start using RAW

This message is intended for those out there who are intermediate shooters, like me. Those who have got the basics figured out (mostly), and are ready to move on to the next level.

I have fought against using RAW for quite some time now. It just seemed like a hassle, but now that I have committed to it, it's remarkable the difference it has made. I've always heard about recovering blown highlights, but didn't think it would help that much. Trust me, it does, along with so many other things. I'm using Adobe CS3 RAW and it has even helped with tweaking old jpg's. When I get my photos where I like them, I save them as jpg's, that way with one quick glance I can tell which pictures are the best.

Anyway, I hope this message convinces a few others out there to drop the jpg's and try their hand a RAW files.
