As stated by other posts, the benefits (to me) of raw vs jpeg are when I don't have time

to properly set up a shot.  If I'm in a hurry, don't have the ISO set right, exposure etc..

it's easier to get a useful photo in raw, versus jpeg.  I shoot about 99% in manual mode,

and sometimes I don't pay attention to the under/over exposure meter in the view finder

because my glasses make it almost impossible to see since the display elements are GREEN.

If I blow out the highlights, RAW makes it much easier to fix, since raw is basically a "negative"

and no processing.  Jpeg already has the processing done, making the curves for changing

anything pretty narrow.

If you have the room on the card, you can always shoot raw + jpeg, and if the jpegs look

ok, just dump the raw files.
