Marie-Noëlle, would you please explain a bit your rationale ?
I'm not sure to understand.
You build automatic JPEGs, without actually working, from your RAW
files. Ok, that's perfectly clear.
But why do you say « one more reason to never use RAW+JPEG », as it
seems to me that keeping the out-of-camera JPEG is certainly the fastest
way to get quick (and excellent) JPEG.
(And often useful when traveling or in holydays, when you just want to
have a look at your images and have only a small laptop without any
PS: also, as Wolfgang wrote earlier, cf.
