RAW and JPG

When shooting RAW+JPG on A900 it is the "normal" JPG, not the Fine or xFine. xFine is so much better than normal.

I have discovered that in good lighting there is very little difference between RAW and xFine, and it is so much more convenient of not having to sit in front of a computer to tweak RAW.

And yet when the lighting is difficult - low light or extremely high contrast RAW is much better than any JPG.

So I have come to my own conclusion - to shoot xFine for most outdoor good light scenes and RAW (+JPG) for indoor and difficult light scenes.

RAW is also necessary if you want to play with pseudo-HDR (I am trying but not really succeeding yet).
