i shoot only jpg. ONLY jpg. i don't care if it's a once in a lifetime opportunity the most gorgeous sunset in the background with the alien's spacecraft setting down to make contact with the human kind's welcoming party and in the background albert pujols is hitting a homerun in a cardinals uniform, plus some naked girls. i'm still shooting jpg.

i have yet to see results out of a RAW file that i perceive as "better" than .jpg to a point where it's worth the effort and resources to profess RAW files. an original "raw" .jpg file out of the camera of course i'll keep saved away somewhere, and i'll make edits to that file.

but RAW? hmmm nah, not for me.

Well, you mustn't shoot B&W, or perhaps you don't have much preference for how a B&W photo should look. I tried and tried, and couldn't get in-camera settings come anywhere close to the type of B&W image I can achieve when I combine proper exposure with judicious post-processing. Case in point...
