Re: JPEG shooters only?

I shoot RAW and JPG, but I use the JPG if it's unimportant and someone wanted a copy of something... and more so to use as my referencing/selecting files before I decide what to process. If I'm running low on card space and it's too inconvenient to swap... I just turn off the JPG setting altogether.

JPGs are really just my cataloging versions of an image.

As for the comment below... I can't imagine not shooting RAW just for the flexibility itself. Why be stuck with any in-camera processing when it would be so easy to take the same photo and apply something different. With JPG you're stuck with whatever you chose to do out in the field... or "forgot" to do.

I'm with Eno... they matter... way too much to settle for what the camera can do.

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.
