If you’ve just bought a DSLR or have a fancy compact camera then this is one of the questions that you might be asking. Is it better to shoot photos in the JPEG format or is it better to shoot them in RAW format?
Some people insist on shooting JPEG and others insist on RAW. What difference does it really make? Is there a benefit to be gained from shooting RAW or is JPEG the way to go?
Making that decision first involves understanding what each of the file formats mean.
