Default Raw to Jpeg

Went to the link-too bad I don't use any of the operating systems listed.
Thanks

I only shoot RAW in low light high ISO situations where it can make a HUGE difference.

Have heard many valid arguments and discussions on both sides of this issue. I tend to shoot in Raw+Jpg. If JPG file is good enough, can just go with it. But often the raw file contains additional information in the highlights and shadows, that can be used to "draw out" a better photo. Just my 2 cents...

If my memory serves me right you use the K20d. I also have that camera but find it hard to abandon my Ist DS. I really enjoy your photo's and interesting to see that you use the the Raw + jpeg. Will have to try that when I get back to Arizona.
Thanks

Why not just use the 'Extract JPG' feature built into the Pentax Digital Camera Utility!

So rather than using Raw+ you can just use raw then extract Jpeg ?

The quality of the RAW extracted JPG will not necessarily be as good as RAW+ where the quality of the JPG can be controlled in the setup.
