Re: shooting raw only with new 60D - and happy?

I've been shooting xxD and xD cameras since the 10D first came out. I pretty quickly moved to shooting only RAW format almost all the time, even when I bought a camera that had the option of shooting both at once - the latter option just slows the camera down and fills the card faster.

There are MANY free utilities that let you quickly and easily extract a basic JPG image from a RAW file on a PC. And when I travel, I have an Android phone and an Android camera with a cheap RAW-to-JPG converter that I can use to import the RAW files, convert them to JPGs, and save them to a thumb drive if needed.

It used to be that I would switch to just JPG if I needed to capture at the fastest rate for several shots, but my 7D can keep up with RAW files sufficiently that I don't need to do that any more.
