Nothing a little seach feature can't get you
I did a test a while ago on my 7D, RAW vs sRAW.
I don't have time to find the original thread, gotta go to work, but the conclusion was that RAW delivers better noise and detail compared to sRAW, when scaled to the same size.
sRAW is only for saving card space, nothing else, if you want quality go RAW.
Would be great help if you could post the link to the thread you were talking about. I shoot in sRaw but was contemplating whether shooting in RAW would yield photos with slightly better output.
