I can't speak for anyone, but in my case, I used JPEG exclusively for my first 5 years of digital SLR and defended its merits ardently. What I discovered was, there wasn't a single image in my JPEG shots that I couldn't improve, even with just a little PP in PSE#. I was finessing the whole gamut, contrast, sharpen, noise, saturation etc. anyways. After getting the @900 and Adobe LTR-3, I went straight to RAW and discovered that it was no more difficult or even much different from what I was already doing in my JPEG files. The big difference was, I ended up with better contol and a much, much improved finished image that was superior to any of my JPEGs that preceded.

Here we go, surprisingly, it was a time when I swore jpg was the way to go...and I was dead wrong.  That's the reason I would not recommend beginners to shoot jpg, but raw or raw + jpg.  Shoot raw, learn how to process your files (that's not difficult, specially nowadays with the large amount of literature on raw process), and you will never use jpg again.

Measurebators are out of my world, photography is not about babbling behind a computer... but rather being out of your home, shoot and share photographs with other people. Shoot and Share...Thanks.
