I'm currently in a university level photography class and one of the requirements (well, it's really more like a strong suggestion) is that we shoot in RAW rather than JPG. Well guess what? I absolutely fucking despise RAW format. For one, my computer hates that file extension. It runs so much slower when I'm working with it. Another thing, I don't have any programs that can process RAW files. In class, we work with Creative Cloud and Camera Raw, but at home I only have CS2, which can't even process the files, let alone convert them. I have to use this stupid online conversion software called Zamzar and it's incredibly tedious. Converting just one photo sometimes takes up to half an hour, imagine trying to convert an entire shoot of 100+ images (oh wait, you fucking can't because there's a 10 mb limit). The only apparently redeeming aspect of RAW images is that the quality is higher. Right? Well, not really. Maybe there's a slight difference, but it's honestly negligible. Yeah, not worth it.
