Once you go beyond basic shooting and upgrade to a camera that has RAW option, you'll wonder which mode you should be shooting in.
It's a good question too! The short answer is that if you never ever plan to edit the photos, JPG will be ok in easy and unchanging lighting conditions. Otherwise I highly recommend shooting in RAW.
I've gone into more depth in the video, explaining what RAW is and why it's more versatile. In addition, when I think it's crucial to use it.
Conditions that you should use RAW rather than JPG.
Anything important where you must get the photos.
Tricky lighting, sunny, bright acontrastnd high conditions.
Strong colours that cause colour casts
Any professional shooting should be done in RAW
