Are you ever happy with your pictures straight out of camera?

RAW always needs some amount of tweaking

RAW is not processed straight out of the camera like JPG's are. Most people find RAW file images to be underwhelming due to this. To approach the JPG equivalent you need to add some contrast, some sharpening, and some saturation for starters.

I use Lightroom 4 which allows you to set a default set of import parameters that will be applied to all files imported from a specified camera. Now I'm happy with my shots (mostly) straight out of the camera.
