Shoot JPEG only, unless there's some compelling reason why you need the RAW files.

If you rarely miss on the exposure and colour balance you don't need RAW.

Do you walk on water too?

Nothing like that.

I used to shoot RAW all the time but my Samsung NX210 has 40MB RAW files with only a handful of applications capable of opening them. My D7100 has 30MB RAW files. Both cameras give you a major boost in operating speed if you turn off RAW. I still shoot RAW sometimes, but only in really difficult lighting. Most of the time though, RAW just slows me down and needlessly quadruples the amount of data I have to deal with.
