I'd probably get better results shooting in RAW but this is just enough for me and saving A LOT of memory space in my hard disks.

I don't know about where you live but in the USA and Canada, hard drives and flash cards are really cheap. I picked up a 3TB USB hard drive for $100 2 mos. ago. Raw file size hasn't been an issue for me because storage capacity vs. price has improved far faster than my image file sizes have grown.

Obviously, it also depends on how many images you amass each month. I am pretty serious about culling the bad images so I think I average maybe 100-150 keepers each month. But I could easily double that or triple that and the file sizes still would not be an issue for storage space on my cards or hard drives.

I come from when memory (in terms of Kb) had to be well useful or collapsing the computer and have not lost the saving memory custom, LOL!
