100% RAW if it is for a proper photo, if I'm just taking snap shots I might stick to JPG. If I'm serious about taking a photo I just want all the control I can get!

Thanks

I'm just getting into RAW processing and the proper workflow. It's just so tough to start processing that RAW file when you have that nice looking JPEG sitting there...

Yes it does seem like a lot more work at first, but it becomes second nature and actually doesn't add too much time. Depends if you need that extra quality and control in my opinion.

I dont even have that nice Jpeg there - I shoot on RAW only. I use the Neutral picture style so there is absolutely no tweaking of the histogram in camera. What I see is what I have got.

That way I can process the image 100% as I like to whether it be B&W or colour. I prefer the relatively flat RAW as I can then decide where to alter exposure/saturation/co​ntrast/sharpening.

Once you get into the way of processing RAW, it becomes very simple and only takes a minute or two in general (some pictures inevitably take longer where I have screwed up a setting:o)

RAW, i love adjusting photos to the way I want it. It just takes a lot of time and practice to post-process (which I'm fairly new at)

I shoot my landscapes in raw only and neutral pic style. And i use DPP to post. I know ill get alot of comments for the pros n cons, but i find DPP alot easer to use then Lightroom Or even Adobe raw.
DPP for me is fast, and doesnt have all the tools lightroom has that i tend to play with and over cook my images.
The best thing is you can still shoot raw + jpeg. That way you still have your Jpeg to view, show off, and maybe print and later when you feel more comfortable play with the raw file.

I only shoot RAW, regardless of the subject matter. I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to this and don't want the camera to do anything other than take the photo.

What's the average time you spend processing a RAW shot?

If I got it right in camera, I only need to use Lightroom so it takes 5 minutes tops for tweaking the settings. If it needs work in photoshop, usually 30 minutes tops. Panoramas, HDRs and Panoramic HDRs take longer.
