Setting for jpeg & raw
Is there a reason for taking shots and setting the camera to save in jpeg & raw instead of just raw I am sure there is or you wouldn't be able to...

Hi,.

A lot of people soon realise that the low quality jpg is as good in the real world as the RAW/raw once processed (or twice and three times processed as many are). And once they've learned that they stop wasting their time with RAW/raw and switch to the highest quality jpg's the thing will do. And live happily ever after, only using RAW/raw for tricky shots where it's use is justified..

In other words, the reason is that it's subversive..

Have a look at cameras with low compression jpg's like Leica and Olympus and you'll see why it's so easy to use jpg's all the time..

Regards, David.

You might want to give someone the jpegs who can't open the RAW images. You might want to print some direct from the camera or memory card while on holiday. You might want to very quickly look through your photos to organise them, and this is easier with jpegs. There may well be times when you want to do something with your photos without having to process the RAW files first, which can be time consuming. Or you might decide that most of the jpegs are good enough, but you like to have a RAW version just in case you need to play with white balance or do other adjustments best doen in RAW..

Depends on your camera too. With my Ricoh for instance, you have to shoot RAW+jpeg because the camera displays the jpeg in playback mode, not the RAW. Many cameras have a relatively crude way of displaying RAW on their own LCDs, so if you take a jpeg too, you'll have a better idea what the photo looks like..

As long as your camera is fast enough and you have enough memory cards, why not do it?.

A practical example. I can process jpegs on my notebook PC but it is not powerful enough to manage RAW files from my Nikon D80 which I pp on my desktop. Once or twice I have done a photoshoot of an opera dress rehearsal then printed jpegs overnight in my hotel room for display outside the theatre then done a more thorough job of PP on the desktop after I got home using the RAW files..

I can also see circumstances using a notebook PC where it might be advantageous to display jpegs to a client on your notebook PC at the shoot and so some simple manipulation leaving the RAW shots untouched to PP back at base..

There are programms (like Irfanview) that can read the jpeg in the RAW file but the ability to manipulate may be limited. Working on the RAW file would be very slow.Chris Elliott.

It's there if you want both JPEG and Raw..

If you normally shoot Raw, then if you happen to also need a JPEG you'd use this setting..

If you normally shoot JPEG, then if you happen to also need a Raw file you'd use this setting..

If you don't need both JPEG and Raw, then just ignore it...

I prefer to shoot and archive in raw....

But....

Say for example you're at a birthday party taking snaps. Nothing special, nothing great, nothing that's going to get heavily edited...then you can archive the raws and not have to do a batch conversion to get the jpegs to email or post (or whatever)..

That's one take on it anyway....
