Man-Fai Wong said:RAW+JPEG. Lazy has nothing to do w/ RAW. If you're too lazy to do anything in-camera, you will just give yourself tons of work to do in PP-ing the RAW files. That's just not very smart, if you ask me. As usual, the best approach to solving problems (of all sorts) requires a certain judicious balance between the various tools, skills, time, margin for errors, etc. available at one's disposable. And of course, it may well also depend on individual style and such. Afterall, it's not mere laziness that makes us want to travel by car and other faster forms of transportation instead of by bicycle or just our own 2 feet.
OTOH, I keep the JPEG (in RAW+JPEG) precisely because I can be quite lazy about PP work.
The "truth" is that most people probably stick w/ JPEG (after learning about RAW) because they don't want to postprocess. If anyone's lazy, it's probably the JPEG-ers. Heh heh...
Steve S said:It may "make you lazy", which I do Not agree with, btw, but thanks to Ed Mac, pushing me to give it a try, I made the switch a little over a yr ago when I got my D2H. I has saved me from untold user errors, esp the time when I had my WB set to Incandescent, instead of Sunny. They DO look almost the same you know! Shot a card full of images, only to get them into the puter and find they were all BLUE! Guess I should'a chimped, huh?
