I shoot in RAW normally. However, the other day I was taking a bunch of pics of clothes my kids have grown out of to sell them with some groups I'm part of on facebook, so I set my camera to .JPEG so I could just shoot, upload and go. Well I forgot to change it back to RAW and then I took some pics of my kids. DOH! THey weren't terrible pictures by any means, but I was so thrown off with not being able to edit in RAW that I had to fight the urge to delete them all! *shakes head*

Ive done that too. It sucks. Now I just leave it on RAW. You can always do RAW + JPEG. It takes up more room on your memory card but you can save yourself those mistakes.

I did that a couple of months ago...except I did two sessions in jpeg....OMG it was a NIGHTMARE to edit them...I'm so used to the ease of raw....I really just wanted to smack my head on a brick wall and it took me sooo long to get thru those two sessions.

I hope I learned my lesson lol

Newbie with photography talk what is RAW I always shoot in JPEG. I don't have that professional of a camera I'd love one once we paid down our credit card.

raw is uncompressed files.....when you shoot in jpeg the camera automatically compresses your files they have more contrast and sometimes brighter colors. when you view them on your computer

your raw files contain much more data....they are far more forgiving when you make errors in lighting (or just don't have enough light). You are able to bump the exposure much more and recover data that you wouldnt be able to fix in a jpeg image.

I actually hate shooting in RAW. I don't know if its because I'm on a Mac, but I use photoshop, and I always have super slow loading of the photos and other annoyances.
