I've been getting into DSLR photography over the last couple months and have just now started shooting RAW and playing around with DPP. I started by shooting in RAW+JPEG so I could compare the two.
After playing around with a RAW photo in DPP I was able to get some really nice results. When compared to the JPEG the post produced RAW photo was definitely superior. The only complaint that I have is how time consuming it was. Granted, I'm a beginner and don't quite know my way around DPP very well, but I can't imagine how long it would take to go through a couple hundred photos in post.
Is this just a leaning curve I need to go through before I will be able to bust out photos in post rapidly or do most of you just enjoy spending hours in post?
