Re: JPGs are better than most suppose...

File sizes are not THAT much different if you go for superfine... from my experience

My RAW files are 19.4Mb
JPEgs are 11-16.8Mb in superfine.

Right, there's no big difference if using super fine JPGs, but my A65 produces 24Mp images at 24Mb files if RAW and 6 to 10Mb if JPG (just fine) only, so for me there's a big difference when saving a big series of photos.

And just to note that you can recover more from an under exposed shot than you can from an over exposed shot. If the pixels are pure white there ain't a lot you can do.

That's correct Peter.
