RAW for Street Photography?
Oct 11, 2010

Hello Street Photographers,

Do you usually shoot RAW or JPEG?

RAW seems ideal when you have the time to carefully set up your shot. When shooting on the street, sometimes I will identify an interesting scene and wait for my subject to enter the frame.

However, most of the time I shoot on the move in a rapidly changing environment. The keeper rate is relatively low. I often use burst mode, hoping that one shot will capture the scene or the facial expression just right. In such conditions, RAW seems a bit cumbersome. Thus, I tend to shoot JPEG (one of the reasons I bought an OLY).

What do you think?
