if u have got the extra time..shoot raw is the best..but y waste time on PP if u can try to make every shot right in the first place?? :dunno:

imagine this scenario:
Case A:
Photog spent 10-20mins to make adjustments for color accuracy. Start shooting in jpeg and print for customer..he can start accepting another job the next day..

Case B:
Photog start shooting straight away in raw and get many shots..but have to spend like 1 day to do processing for all photos..he has 1 day less of earning..

If raw is the best option, u won't be seeing so many custom white balance devices/gears in the market..

Also, you have got to realise that some camera like the one i'm using, do not let us shoot in raw. Maybe that is where TS is coming from. Its a matter of how to get the best colour from a camera with no RAW, and NOT RAW vs. JPG.

In such a case, shooting with a grey card is only applicable to those camera with custom white balance settings.

For every colour shift, you'd have to whip out your card and re-meter the scene to check for the white balance again.

I shoot studio sessions with jpg, do a custom WB before the shoot,
end of the shoot, burn CD and give it to customers,
and carry on shoot next customers

if you shoot raw like this situation, you gonne cry.
