Re: POLL: How often do you shoot raw images?

I never shoot in RAW because I'm almost always in burst mode because my favorite subjects tend to move fast (birds and insects).  But I do plan to force myself to start.

Just did a quick experiment with my FZ200 and burst mode at 12fps. It seems to shoot 12 and then stop regardless of the file format, then pause for a while before I can shoot another 12. When I shoot at 5fps, it fires off a few shots at full speed and then slows down. With JPEG it maintains about a shot/sec. With RAW, about a shot every 2 seconds. Anybody have a more detailed account of how it behaves with different file formats at different nominal burst rates?
