I have met a lot of photographers that shoot RAW+JPG and the “common” answer to my “Why this JPG do you really feel like loosing space on that CF card of yours?” is that they can’t see the RAW files as thumbnails or even that, like me, they keep a JPG version of their image on their hard drive for future quick reference and archive the RAW file on other storage devices.
There are so many reasons why one should use the RAW format but one of the main problems that I often hear people complaining about is that RAW images are not natively recognized by windows and thus a special programs are needed to view them.
