DSLR Catechism

A DSLR Catechism: the basic principles every DSLR photographer should know. My favorite? “Should you shoot RAW? No! Shoot jpeg and get it right the first time you fucking moron.” :-)

    How does shooting in RAW preclude “getting it right the first time”? I won’t venture a guess on what kind of moron you are but a moron nonetheless.

    I didn’t really take it as a joke either, just raw (no pun intended) arrogance and ignorance about the expanded capabilities of RAW format.

    Personally, I liked the one about which camera is best – but would add a secondary answer – “The camera your buddy and/or competitor has.”
