Re: it's a little more complicated than that

Not sure why you're calling me names,

by "meaningless" I meant "unimportant" in the sense that they are just quick grab shots. I never said family photos, as clearly those are important. Wasn't trying to offend, just trying to distinguish a quick snap for your Facebook page in which you might shoot JPEG for speed vs a landscape image you make with your tripod or a studio portrait with strobes where you'd certainly want to shoot RAW.

But you posting those wonderful images brings up a greater point: Would you rather have those priceless images in JPEG, or a proper DNG or RAW?

Keep digging...

Memories are not "meaningless" and neither are they "unimportant".  In fact I would argue that IQ has little to do with capturing the moment.
