How do you shoot /p/?
Do you shoot JPEG+RAW or JPEG?

I know that RAW are extremely useful in terms of post processing, but for a starter in the world of photography, what do you recommend? Currently just using JPEG, highest res (4272x2848)

One time, I shot RAW+sJPG on my GH3, just so I could send the JPGs via WiFi. I realized after that I had no other use for the JPGs. After I was done dicking around with WiFi, I never went back to RAW+anything.

On Canon, I shoot RAW only.
On my X-T1, I shoot RAW plus JPEG in monochrome with a green filter.

It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or a pro, the only decision you need to make is this: Do you ever want to process this photo you're about to take? If yes, then shoot RAW. If not, then shoot JPEG.

Pardon my ignorance, but are there any alternatives to shooting JPEG+RAW or JPEG? I thought those were the only options?

You can shoot just RAW. Also, on some cameras, you can shoot RAW, mRAW, and sRAW (which are smaller file sizes)

Some cameras will shoot TIFF. They tend to be older 'luxury' P&S and ultra high end studio cameras. Would not recommend.

I was wondering about RAW+JPEG(Large) because I'm afraid I get a nice shot with the wrong exposure or lighting and not notice it until I get home, so I can save it in the post processing

Well then you have your answer.

But you should really learn to use your metering modes and your priority modes. Don't try to force using M all the time like the autistic posters here will tell you to do. Unless you're shooting with flash, it's of no use other than slowing you down and upping your rate of missed exposures.

I almost always use RAW only. If you want jpegs, you can create them all in the automatic profile when you are home, just as your camera would do. Using RAW only is better because it forces you to edit your shots and create better results than your camera would do.

But when being a soccer mom, it is absolutely OK to shoot jpeg.

Why would I do that? That just takes up more space on my sd card.

I shot TIFF on my D800 once.
My SD card is still aching.

Never again.

My subjects and composition triumph over what little quality I'd gain from dicking around with a RAW. I have better things to do, like shoot more.
I would use RAW for professional work and other occasions where I can't easily reshoot, just as a kind of backup. (RAW+JPEG)

Noob question, does JPEG+RAW store two separate files for the same shot? As in a separate JPEG file and separate RAW file?

Thanks

You aren't supposed to shoot TIFF onto an SD card. You're supposed to tether and send them right into Photoshop.

Yes.
They are different filetypes. How else would that work?

I shoot only RAW.

My first digital camera could only shoot JPEG or TIFF and had no tethering. Oh, the joys of waiting for it to write a full-resolution TIFF to a 500 KB/s card.

Shoot raw only.

Get the camera profiles in lightroom.

You can now recreate camera jpegs without actually using the camera jpeg engine.

Best of everything.

JPEG for sports, RAW for everything else.

i use raw always, then if i need to have a jpg (usually due to traveling and needing to import some pics for email real quick) i just process in camera and create a jpg. i can mess with exposure and wb and profiles right then and there with no computer. x100s
