Re: What you should take home from Ricardo's post...

RAW has its uses, but it's not the end-all of photography. For many
pros and advanced amateurs alike, JPEG works fine, likely because
they understand what the tools they work with are capable of
providing in a given situation.

IMO, a beginner should concentrate on the above.

And I don't think Ricardo was being an ass. It's just that this
subject has been played to death 250 times already. It's like
putting ten economists in a room and getting them to agree with each
other. It'll never happen.

Steve, I couldn't agree with you more. RAW should not interfere with learning the basics. I'm just trying to convice a few more people to give it a try. I apologize if this has been played to death. I just joined a couple of weeks ago and new folks join everyday who haven't seen a similar thread. I opened Adal's eyes to RAW and hopefully a few other people as well. As far as I'm concerned, my work is done.
