My camera doesn't have raw output, but it does have three JPG quality settings. I just tested empirically to see how they correspond to the JPEG Q parameter:
SettingSizejpg Q
Superfine 1824k 98
Given that quality of 75 is considered adequate in most JPEG software, there's some comfortable headroom here. Fine's 94 quality seems plenty for the photos to me and saves almost half the space. Then again with 1 gig of Compactflash for $83, there's not much need to economize storage. Bandwidth is still expensive, I'll have to remember to recompress the images before uploading to Flickr.
