Guys, read this link http://gizmodo.com/the-inside-story-of-how-olympic-photographers-capture-s-1521746623

AP and Getty pros all shoot JPEG exclusively at the Olympics and get amazing photos. RAW is not the only thing that pros use.

This makes sense as there entire focus is the speed at which they can get it to print. Not only is there no time to process raw files, but they have to send the files back over hot spots and dedicated internet feeds, so smaller file sizes are necessary to facilitate the transfer of heavy loads of images going back to base. This is a situation where it just makes sense.

So can you tell me how many professional photographers are at the Olympics shooting JPEG please?

Oh, and by the way, you can use the term "many" to describe any size group you want to, but when it is on the line and the image quality is the first thing that matters, your "many" is a minority.

Look, I would rather shoot jpegs also, and I am a bit jealous of these olympics guys who get to shoot and shoot and never sit and process. But it just doesn't work out that way.
