for those who shoot RAW files, do you also shoot Jpegs?

if you do shoot both, what do you do with the jpegs if you use the RAWs for PP and sharing/printing/selli​ng?

at any point in time do you delete the jpegs and just store your RAW files?

i shoot both, use the jpegs for quickly scrolling through to see how they look and the RAWs for post processing...

I shoot jpegs only when I am breaking in a new camera.
Once I am shooting for real, I switch to RAW only unless I am doing something that requires I specifically have instant access to a jpeg.

I understand the idea of jpegs just for browsing, especially in this era of lightroom where the RAW browsing software tends to be so dog slow and or involved with catalogue building etc.

For what it's worth, there are RAW applications that can browse RAW files as fast as most jpeg viewers. (Breezebrowser for example)

RAW only 95% of the time. Otherwise I use the JPEG to upload family outing pics to facebook. So if I am on a family hike I shoot RAW+JPEG that away I have the RAW files for the landscapes and such that I take, and JPEGS for snapshots, without worrying about switching for each shot.

Otherwise my wife takes enough JPEGS with her phone to last a lifetime lol.

RAW unless I'm shooting a time lapse and then I move to JPEG, since almost all of the time lapses I do are more to just mess around or document things and they are several thousand shots.

In the last couple of years I started Raw Dawging. My editing style has changed so when I go back to my old JPGs, I wish the JPGs were raw that I have more flexibility in editing.

The only time I shoot .jpg is if I need to create an image fast with no time for editing. Otherwise its so easy to batch convert raw to .jpg there is no need to shoot both.

I used to shoot RAW+JPEG but now I shoot strictly RAW, I'm not sure it's true but I've read somewhere that the camera can get faster when just doing one. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Since you are only writing one file to the card instead of two your buffer fills more slowly and empties more quickly. In some models of DSLR that may also affect the frame rate as well as the maximum burst.

thanks for the replies...

ive thought about just ditching the jpegs because ive gotten to the point now where i THINK i have the photo styles set where i want them (and understand what they do/how they work) but its ALMOST LIKE, ill be taking a risk if i dont shoot them both...

i dont know why, maybe i need to start doing so just a little bit at a time, like i eased my way into doing PP with the RAW in DPP...

baby steps i guess...

RAW only. If I did ever need in camera style jpegs I can just apply a preset and then batch export them.

Sorry off the topic.

1st time hear about this, any more detail please?

BTW, RAW for me; unless the camera doesn't have the RAW capability such as P&S underwater camera.

I shoot RAW pretty much exclusively though with that said if I want to shoot JPEG I have my settings for my Standard picture style set up so I get the look I want for the most part SOOC. I usually shoot RAW for the express purpose of PP though as I love to take images and use filters and other settings on them to spice them up and give focus to certain part of an ultra sharp image

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

The only time I shoot jpeg, is when I'm doing inspections that require just a small image. I also shoot raws along with them, even though I'll never, ever do anything with the raws (except delete them in a couple of days).

When I'm actually shooting for myself, it's RAW and only RAW. I really don't bother with jpegs.
