Started out with jpeg until I discovered the possibilities of RAW and installed lightroom. Now I almost always shoot RAW.

Another benefit of shooting raw is that
when there is a dispute over who owns the image, if you have the raw file
you win the case :)

Kinda like having the negative.

I started with JPEG and used RAW+JPEG in difficult situations.
Then I switched to RAW+JPEG all the time.
Meanwhile I got Lightroom and now im shooting in RAW only.

I shoot raw only. If I need quick jpegs is use the "Instant Jpeg from RAW"  plugin.

I mostly shoot RAW to provide maximum quality and flexibility in PP (white balance, anyone?), but this is a good point I hadn't considered.

+1.....and is this really still relevant conversation?

The flaw in the poll was the absence of a 100% RAW option. Once you have a 100% RAW workflow the prospect of ever shooting JPEG is akin to wrestling bears with one arm tied behind your back. Why voluntarily give away the RAW advantage?

RAW + JPEG...always. Some of my clients want the jpeg's immediately after the shoot.

Primary workflow is raw but I set my 5DIII up for raw on the CF an JPG on the SD cards.  The JPG captures are my safetly valve incase something goes wrong.  I can also dump them to disc and scroll through them very quickly if I want to scan the photos from the shoot and zero in on where I want to start my raw processing.  There are a few cases where I'll go straight to the JPG but rarely.  For example I'm keeping a daily photo diary of a major remodeling project at my house and uploading to FaceBook.  I just grab the JPGs off the SD card for that.  There have also been one or two occassions where I was the second shooter at some event and the primary wanted all the shots at the end of the day.  And since she wasn't a raw shooter, I wasn't going to bother.  I handed her the SD card of JPGs at the end of the day.

Guess I'm one of the "outlier"...
Used to shoot pure RAW back with birds but got tired of dealing with the files because of size and loading time.
To me, they don't offer enough benefits to justify the disadvantages.
Having said, shooting a wedding is probably the only instance where I would consider using RAW.

RAW 100% of the time, and that's full RAW, not one of the not full RAW options now being offered.
