For the life of me I can't understand people wanting a serious system camera and all the fixings just to shoot jpeg, but to each their own. Mix poor light, high ISO, and bad WB settings, then demand a SOOC jpeg, and that is what you may get.

Many professionals that I know, shoot jpeg. It saves time + smaller file size for storage.

I shoot portraits and events and on top of that, I have a full time job. I have no time, nor desire to tinker with the RAW files.

"Many professionals I know"

Okay, I am not going to jump all over that one other than to ask, how many pros out there do you think shoot RAW?

Yes, how many? Do you have any statistical data? Are we all just rehashing our limited experiences? In my limited experience I haven't seen a single wedding photographer shooting raw. If you ask them you get an obvious answer: time is money!

Real mature. You should go around telling people how much you wish you made some more.

What's wrong? You are head of photography, are you not?

I am. This is true. But it has no bearing on whether or not someone should argue or give their opinion in any matter. You wanted to count off some pros that shoot jpeg, and tell us how you know. I did the exact same thing, and told you how I know. Now you seem to want to turn around and poke fun at it.

Then you decide to turn around and advertise your earnings to everyone here as if they were something to brag about.

I did you a favor and advised forpetessake not to argue with you.

Or do you want to argue and get another "win" to boost your ego?

You are just being sore about the entire thing, and yes, you do want to carry on about how jpeg is some pro standard. Another member clearly posted a great example of how jpegs are used professionally, and I totally agree. I even said that I would love to be a jpeg shooter myself, but it just doesn't work out for the best that way with everything, and that a great majority of pros feel the same way.

That wasn't good enough for you, so it begs the question, what is? Well, like I said, you set out to make it look like jpeg is some pro standard, and it is not. You implied incorrectly, and now you are acting out because it is your only out. Bravo.
