I shoot raw + jpeg, as someone said above, it allows you to easily review on the computer without going into lightroom or photoshop etc. It also allows you to quickly send photos to family etc.

I use raw for my own use so I can tweak the files to how I want them before printing. The amount that you can improve or save a photo in the raw format is incredible.

That's what i do also. Shooting both allows you to edit if you need to but if you get a good shot you do not have to go into lightroom or something else to Export to get a different file type. Its a good idea but RAW is a better choice because it gives more flexibility :)

I used to do the same thing, but it took up too much space on my 8GB memory cards. I now have 32GB cards but find that if my import settings on my computer import with light room I can not only view them but tweak if needed, right away. When I export them to a file after I have done any tweaking I want in lightroom I export straight to a jpeg format and I still have the raw in my lightroom catalog system to work with at a later time if necessary.

But as I have grown in my photography, I see I need less and less tweaking in lightroom, however, I do use photoshop on the jpegs if I want to add some artistic flare to my images.

Hope this helps!

You can preview images in finder/explorer as long as you have the proper codecs installed. Shooting raw+jpeg is a waste of hard drive space, you only need raw.
