Ken Rockwell claims that he doesn't need to shoot RAW and he said if you know what you are doing JPEG is fine. He also said the smallest size JPEG is good enough.
well I think I know what I'm doing but I need RAW. Anyway, my real question is
1. what size of RAW and JPEG do you normally use?
2. do you use camera NR at all? or do you use LR?
3. what settings would you advise against and for?
> "he doesn't need to shoot RAW"
Fair enough. Everyone has different needs!
I have some photos that were unusable as in camera JPEG and turned out decent processed from RAW (maybe he would say I don't know what I am doing).
unless you are lunatic as hell,
I know what I am doing well,
super busy shooting children who run around and yell,
the greatest and only, Ken Rockwell.
modern cameras allows you best of both worlds. Recording RAW as well as JPEG!!!
> "if you know what you are doing JPEG is fine"
Right answer is it depends on the shooting conditions and histogram. Does he know what he is doing?
> "smallest size JPEG is good enough"
Again it depends? Good enough for what? For iphone?
Answers to your question:
1) RAW on CF card, Med-Low JPEG on SDHC card for quick review (SDHC goes into my laptop or ipad (with adaptor) for instant review).
2) Photoshop only for printing
3) See #1, you can record Med-High JPEG on SDHC card for quick web uploading if you prefer.
