In my opinion all the modern digital cameras have pretty good JPEG engines and they generally do not have problems with the WB, exposure control and so on, so shooting the RAW won’t increase the IQ of your pictures. However, under the harsh light conditions, when the straight tone curve will not suffice (and the JPEG engine use them straight), then the shooting the RAW makes sense. You can see what a difference it makes at the latest DP review of the Olympus e-pm2:

You don't need to use the jpg straight tone curve anymore, I agree that it is really pathetic, that is why I turn on canon's Icontrast and get the enhanced DR and AUTO control of contrast based on the scene being taken.  Many companies have tried to provide extended DR but mostly it has problems in one situation or another, but the Icontrast is amazing, it alone would make me buy another canon camera with this feature.

Hi Brian,

Your pictures are simply amazing. And your camera even doesn't have the RAW shooting option. So, any camera in good hands can deliver fantastic results.

Thanks, but I must give some credit to the little camera, its amazing, and as others have said the DIGIC 5 and now 6 produce beautiful images straight from the camera.  I thought cameras had stalled in terms of their capabilities, but I still find that after a couple of years the new models out do the old.  I don't miss raw, as I don't think I would be able to equal this jpg performance at least not without a lot of practicing.
