If the situation has tricky lighting and you need to shoot on the safe side, use RAW.. else I'll just shoot AdobeRGB Jpeg.
Also, not all cams are 16bits..
All this information is good to know, but if u're satisfied with jpeg for now, then save the card space and enjoy shooting.
Nikon D700, N24-70 f2.8, N70-200 f2.8, Sigma 50mm f1.4.
I usually shoot JPEG despite reminding myself constantly to shoot in RAW.
But I'm not a fussy shooter and don't demand absolute quality for general work. But when the lighting sucks, I switch to RAW. Needless to say, the tweaking of WB/exp/etc have saved me time and again .
film never afforded me this post processing kelong and I intend to keep the status quo unchanged for myself
i prefer shooting in JPEG because it forces me to THINK about the exposure settings , f-stops and what not before executing the image so that I get it as right as possible IN CAMERA
be confident .......... shoot in Jpeg and have the guts to use delete button ..... those 'moments' might not be there again in future.... so make sure you capture successfully when you release shutter.
