Re: Raw images are they worth it

I find the best use of RAW for PowerShots is to get around the limited dynamic range. My A710 has about 6-7 stops of dynamic range. With RAW, the shadow areas of shots taken in bright sunlight aren’t so dark and can be easily brightened. With JPEGs I’m stuck with the dark shadows.
