I don't really believe in using any PP software to alter an image too much. If I do, it's to lighten/darken certain parts of an image or to enhance the color a tad if it's been brought down by haze and such. I'm wondering though if maybe I'm better off using JPEG as opposed to RAW since the camera will automatically makes adjustments to the image? Or am I still better off shooting RAW?

I agree with DSHAPK

Taking raw pictures if you need to pixel level,other it is a waste of your memory.

hard disk space,if you count lets say take 400 pictures A week like me.

You can adjust jpg just like raw make a profile in lightroom and you are done.

printing to A4 you won,t see the difference.

If you go for a one trip then shoot raw+Jpg just to be sure.

Better save then sorry.

otherwise pictures you can shoot over and over again,no need for raw.
