It seems I'm the only JPEG shooter here. Sure, it can be a nightmare when you have taken a shot with a wildly wrong WB setting, & it will deteriorate each time it is processed. But, from slide film, I have learnt to get my exposure right when I release the shutter, not during hours of post processing.
But the fact is the D100 buffer is way too small to cope with RAW files for sustained shooting. With my microdrive, it takes the best part of 30 seconds just to clear 4 RAW files from the buffer. This limits my ability to capture action, spontaneous moments & even posed photos since a group of people won't wait for the cows to come home before I can take another picture. In JPEG Large / Fine mode, I have rarely had to wait since the smaller files get written straight away. In Medium / Fine, I've only run into the buffer at sports events.
I'd like to use RAW one day, but I'm afraid the D100 just isn't up to the task most of the time. I am limited to use it for landscape & other static subjects until this issue is sorted (ie, hopefully in the next camera).
