Re: Do I really need Raw
In reply to phototransformations, Apr 6, 2014

For a number of years I got into RAW and really enjoyed the process of using Lightroom and Photoshop. I was convinced it was the only way to go.  Plus, it reminded me of my darkroom days. As the iPad became more a part of my workflow, and because it doesn't really process raw, I have gone back to shooting extensively in jpg. I am pretty satisfied with the IQ of the jpgs produced by my ZS25/40, LX7 and FZ50. Any tweaking of highlights, shadows, sharpening and color I can do so with Photogene without too much image degradation. I may go back again, but probably not. An added benefit is I don't have to keep buying larger and larger hard drives to keep all those huge raw files.

Take care,
