I always shoot my photos in RAW format
But on recent trip oversea with my friend (who also owns a dslr), he told me its pointless to shoot it in RAW unless you are only going play arnd with the white balance. If not Jpeg would do just as well.
So is what he said really true? I mean I shoot in RAW format so that I can edit them in Lightroom as well as in Adobe Photoshop. but can this also be done with jpeg?
Bottomline is that what is the difference between RAW and jpeg and what makes most ppl shoot in RAW format?
