The anal retentives over on the dpreview forums love their jpeg vs. raw debates. It’s like all their christmases come at once. Personally I like shooting raw + med jpg because it means I have both a digital negative and a medium res pic I can upload immediately onto flickr while I’m processing the raws.
Now that I have 60gb of storage in my camera bag I’ve got no reason not to shoot raw at the upcoming tall ships event in Waterford on the 8th. If nothing else it’ll be practice.
One good quote from those debates is often something like “You’ll never look back at a photo shot in RAW and think ‘Gee, I wish I shot that in jpeg’ “
