I've read some of the questions and answers on here but they are all years old. (some of them over 10 years ago)

In this day and age, is there still a significant difference in quality of the image between JPEG and RAW, and if so, how big is that difference? And is there a difference between shooting for digital use vs shooting for print? Is RAW for example much better for print, while for digital the difference is smaller?

    \$\begingroup\$ The answer is still the same as it was. JPEGs are still JPEGs and have only 8 bit range. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ The key (in my interpretation) is that RAW isn't an image at all. It must be post-processed. You can post-process JPEGs too of course (or not), but a RAW file gives you much more to work with. \$\endgroup\$
