Blimey you are getting braver, Now you are saying all the jpeg and elderly Pro Photographers are lazy snapshooters.

What's more work?

Exposing for JPG, getting a JPG, post processing a JPG, releasing a JPG?

Or:

shooting RAW, exposing for subject with individual considerations for the DR latitude desired, exposure correcting, curving, de-hot pixeling and selective denoising and possibly tone-mapping the RAW, getting a 16-bit tiff, color grading the tiff, getting a tiff or png, post processing the png in photoshop or equivalent, and finally getting a png/jpg/tiff depending on what the client wants, and releasing the final image?

So what's the lazy approach?
