Hi Jamie!

Short answer: I shoot in RAW and process in Sigma software.

Long answer: When I first got my Sigma SD1 Merrill I watched a simple YouTube review by Angela Nicholson and she said that the JPEGS OOC were a bit flat compared to processing the RAW files with the Sigma Photo Pro software. So, right from the begining I always shot in RAW and processed in the Sigma software. I always enjoyed the results and the time consumming process doesn't bother me. When I purchased the Sigma Sd Quattro and later the Quattro H I just continued following the process I was already in the habit of doing.

A point of possible interest to you is that 100% of the time I process in the Auto mode and then occasionally I override the result if I'm not happy with it. That almost always means that I tweak the exposure setting one way or another. Most of the time Auto mode gets it right (in my opinion). If I was smarter I might tweak the other settings or have pre-set custom settings; but I'm not smarter so I don't.

Sorry for giving you such a lengthy detailed (rambling) answer to your short question but there it is.
