I've pretty much always been a RAW shooter, but on this trip the emphasis was on fun and relaxation, so I chose to shoot JPEG. My thinking was that I would eliminate all post processing, get more images on a card, carry less gear and just enjoy the trip. If some images weren't up to par, I'd just delete 'em. No worries. I carried my E-PL1 and two lenses (14-42 and 40-150) and the VF-2, just one battery and one sd card. One of the most pleasant surprises for me about the E-PL1 was how handy and useful the art filters became. I tried them on a lark and ended up using them quite often. Another big surprise was the iAuto mode (which looks like an automatic contrast and saturation adjustment to my eye). I almost passed iAuto by thinking it would be unreliable and unpredictable, sure glad I didn't! So, long story short, I came home with hundreds of images from the trip, deleted a very small percentage and didn't do any post production at all. This little PEN camera from Olympus really is terrific and perfect for travel. Photo-geek stats: Olympus E-PL1 using the 14-42 kit lens. Shot in jpeg mode using in camera art filter "pinhole" setting and 6x6 format. No post processing other than resizing for the web.
