Re: Better to compare apples to apples

Indeed; it's a bit saddening to see such examples, as it leads one to think RAW has no meaning if not to correct your own mistakes, when it has myriad more uses.

Anyways, to answer your question: yes, it'd take more time to process a RAW file, but it's not much more; if you're used to a Photoshop-oriented workflow, then the difference between RAW and a JPEG is just another dialog box when opening the file, where you can confirm or adjust WB and exposure settings. With a Lightroom-based workflow however times are exactly the same, but that's a bit of cheating since LR is oriented towards RAW and so their "solution" for JPEGs is making them go through the exact same process, regardless of how much sense it makes (you do not want to adjust WB in a JPEG, ever).
