Re: Do you really have to RAW??

I didn't read the whole thread, but in the A99 book Gary Friedman writes about the Raw question,

only use Raw when you need a backup or if something goes wrong (lighting)

Splashy, this is absolutely false. I really don't want to step into this, but I respect Friedman's work too much to let you misrepresent his views here (and I've called you on this before). I challenge you to provide the above quote to support your statement (it simply doesn't exist)... you may have drawn that conclusion, based upon your needs/use, after Gary presented pros/cons for different scenarios, but to imply such a quote is a total, 100% fabrication.

Instead, what I do  find in Gary's a99 book, in Chapter 15, page 536, is:

"if my light is good and my exposure is right for that light then I sometimes will shoot only FINE or XFINE .jpg since the benefits of RAW in that scenario are not compelling."

This is total opposite of what you've represented above.
