Tim, personally, I want as much data as the camera can give me. Otherwise, I would just shoot LSF JPEG (8 bit, 2.7:1 compression).Although, to be frank I don’t know how much it matters for most people. I’ve been shooting lossy compressed on my A7RIII for every day gee-whiz stuff and it’s fine. If I were shooting more critical stuff I’d switch it back, but for a walk around type day , no problem.
Ditto with software. S/W that cannot handle high bit depth, wide gamut colour spaces are quite limiting.
