I think we have enough people here to go in on a group purchase of some T-shirts that say "100% RAW".

You can't be familiar with froknowsphoto.com
Too often we lose sight of the fact that photography is about capturing light, if we have the ability to take control of that light then we grow exponentially as photographers. More often than not the image is not about lens speed, sensor size, DR, MP's or AF, it is about the light.

I am, but I believe his says "I shoot RAW"?  That was mentioned on page 1.

I only switch to JPEG when I want long bursts of continuous shots, following some active subject, hoping for the perfect shot to pop out the string.  Shooting raw overwhelms the buffer too quickly.

Oh, I also use JPEG when checking the autofocus on a lens, so that I can zoom in something finer than the thumbnail JPEG in raw images on the back screen.

Other than that, it is raw all the way.

1000% RAW.  The way I setup my 1DX is Large RAW plus small JPEG.

Unless shooting 14fps with the 1DX, it will be jpg.

This thread shouldn't be going too long. It is pointless to argue between the 2
UNLESS
you are using something like D800 where 36 MP maybe problematic storing the raw files.

I shoot raw even for facebook posting

Surely you see the irony of resurrecting a dying thread to tell us that this thread should die off?

Imagine a day when people worry more about their photos than their file format.

Imagine the day when the 50 terabytes of RAW files stored in the "cloud" can not be accessed by a photographer who believed that their photos were safe... :o

Okay, you worry about the thing I said, and I'll do yours and then we switch.

Like others I started with jpegs and changed to raw only after needing to enhance my pics to fix things that weren't quite
right in the pic. I started to use DPP to increase the contrast to 3 and sharpen to 7. I convert and save to TIFF and quality
jpegs so I can attach the jpegs to emails so I can email them to friends. Mail compresses the jpegs nicely to keep it to around 1 gig or less for emails. I want to learn how to print from DPP so i can ditch PS.
