    As a photojournalism student, I found it funny that she said that the pros only used JPEG while a few minutes later you can see that she was using RAW+JPEG when she looks at her lcd screen.

    I really think she meant that you send them in as JPEG. You shoot raw, send jpeg. She probably saves both just in case she needs to send a shot out quicker than anticipated.
