Why?

I shoot raw, but see that some cameras can store raw and jpg, why would you need the jpg's, what's the advantage?

jpg's are much smaller.

In the studio we shoot both, and then load the jpgs up for the client to preview (much faster when you've got a client waiting). Then we edit from raws.

I shoot RAW & small JPEG with the 20D and RAW and large JPEG on the 1d, then view the JPEGS for an idea of the RAW files I'd like to edit.

The small jpg's are perfect for emailing or previewing as is. No need to process a RAW file to get a small preview jpg emailed to a client.

Ahh, thanks. That'll be why I don't see the advantage, I haven't got any clients! doh!

I also noticed that the length and height proportions are different. RAW files seem more square? Can you print them as is?

While you guys are talking RAW vs. JPG, I have a question. I'm not trying to kill the thread either, I just don't want to start ANOTHER thread!

I only have PS Elements (which I cannot open RAW files with! :-[). Is there a program that I can get to be able to work with them? Thanks -BB

PS. ALL my shots so far have just been edited from straight JPG format.

I shoot both all the time. I review them for myself in jpg (no clients either) and tag the crap then delete both RAW and JPG of that image. JPG opens 100 times faster on my old piece of $4![ PC.

I know for a fact though that I need a better workflow. I only ever use the RAW images if it's for DPC.

I shoot Canon and use Elements 4. I can open the RAW from Elements and it launches the RAW converter then after accepting the conversion it pops up in regular Elements for editing. Maybe Nikon D40X is not a supported RAW format?

I'll have to double check that tonight as I'm not sure. That's probably the case. Thanks -BB
