Commentary & Poll: In which format are you currently shooting your photos?

Day 8 of “12 Days Of Christmas” takes us looking at the way you have set up your camera, and what format you take your images in. For some it changes, for others they always photograph in either jpeg or raw. Let’s find out!

Some people only shoot jpeg, and that has some great benefits as mentioned here while others only shoot in raw, which also has huge benefits as I’ve mentioned here. I, and many others photograph in both jpeg and raw, as of course, that has its advantages too!

I don’t believe for one second that in this day and age that anyone seriously thinks it is best to shoot one over another. They are both more than capable of getting fantastic results, and as long as you, or the person you are photographing for is happy, no-one, other than perhaps a few photographers who simply don’t understand that everyone is different, will care.

So whatever you choose in this poll, it is not the wrong answer, and no-one is better than you because they use on or the other. Professionals use both, amateurs use both. Enjoy!


I am a semi-professional photographer who runs a weekly meeting photography group as well as numerous Facebook groups (Great Photography Walks South Wales and Fujifilm Lovers Worldwide Group). I also have a brand-new blog website dedicated to various other things which I like to call The Ramblings Of A Welshman. I hope you can join me there; you might find it interesting!

  1. I often try to catch a moment when the light is changing fast, so I like the fact that JPG has much less time lag between shots on my camera.

    My photo editor can process RAW files, but it can only store to JPG (or PNG).  So the reputed advantages of RAW for editing can only be real for me if I do all my editing at once.  Maybe I should spring for a fancier editor, but mine is inexpensive and does not seem in practice to benefit from starting with RAW rather than JPG.
