I ran across this video on YouTube. I think it is a pretty good representation of why I feel shooting in RAW is important.
My opinion: Shooting RAW gives me the ability to recover more details in the highlights or shadows if I don't get the settings right in the camera.
I would prefer to get it right in the camera. But I know that being visually impaired, sometimes what I see isn't the same as what others see.

PS - my proof reader had to work this evening. So, please forgive any typo's. I did my best to re-read it myself.
