After years of shooting RAW only I accidentally shot a bunch of Rugby photos in JPEG. left the camera on in my bag and I guess a freak combination of button presses must have set it to JPEG. Didn't spot it until I loaded the images into Lightroom. Luckily most of the image were fine but there were a few that were over exposed. A problem that would have been easily sorted in RAW was baked into the JPEGs and couldn't be properly fixed. JPEG makes baby jesus cry :cry:

Comes back to the discussions we've had regarding whether one should turn the camera off or not, when not using it.

I Know the feeling I did some small sized jpegs for my website and my mate rang to say lets go birding .

I forgot to change back to RAW and was on medium jpeg so ended up with a Great shot of great crested Grebes in a small file :(

I frequently check how many shots I have left. I would definitely suspect something if my top LCD said 1999 after shooting for a while.

I shoot RAW + Jpeg exclusively. I never vary from this. As such, i never have to worry about these settings, as they're set when the camera is new... and it gets sold that way. :)

Shockingly, the studio I shoot for uses JPEG exclusively. They have lots of photographers with different brands who shoot >50K shots combined per weekend; they prefer the smaller files and not having to process differently formatted raws.

Occasionally I forget to switch back to RAW after a wedding :-(

I'm not so sure this ("JPEG exclusively") is unusual. Most studios put the burden of post processing on the photographer for numerous reasons, key being the photographer saw the subject matter "live" and hence is best able to interpret what the ultimate viewer should see.

I shoot in jpegs. But I always try to get it as right as possible in camera, and I hardly do any post work.

I shoot all of my sports in jpeg format. I shoot all of my weddings in RAW. With weddings im on the run all day long and I am in a ton of mixed lighting. I need and want that security especially since I am getting paid great $$$ to do it right. Sports and wildlife is more of a hobby for me so hence Jpeg format is good enough plus the lighting is much more controlled and its easier to get the WB on the money.

How badly overexposed are your shots? I shoot jpeg a lot, and have no problem correcting exposure in lightroom.

It's also possible to clean that up to a surprising degree in Photoshop, with a blend layer or the marvelous Healing brush. I rescued a portrait last weekend which accidentally got overexposed +2 stops and it's almost impossible to tell it was blown out in spots.

This!!! Only because I sometimes shoot weddings as a second. It's a fast moving event so raw helps.

And this... I have my picture style customized and I manually dial in my wb so I hardly do any post work either.

I've never had my camera switch to jpeg on it's own, but I've been the culprit on more than one occasion.

then put camera back in bag... DUH!

studios with good lighting dont *NEED* raw, the shot should come out with minimal processing to maximize efficiency anyhow. Shoot raw if you want to manipulate.
