It's not, but everything has its uses.

I usually set my camera to take pictures in jpeg format. However, when I
_expect_ to be doing post-processing, I set it to RAW, since that's way
more suited to do such things.

Eh, "too" much? Who are you to decide what's too much for someone else?

Anyway, some people (photo hobbyists mainly) think of "going somewhere
for two weeks doing nothing but taking pictures" as "a great vacation".
That usually results in an amount of pictures that is far higher than
the result of "going to the beach, and taking a camera", or even
"hopping out to see a bunch of buildings, and taking some pictures of
them, too".
