It isn't if you know how to calibrate whites, have lighting to where you can expose for faces without blowing highlights too badly, and have good enough contrast with the ambient lighting. In short, sure you don't need it, but why not just use it?

RAW isn't an absolute necessity.

Maybe not, but i'd never shoot anything but RAW.

Playoff game tonight and I'm getting ready to shoot. What file size should I be shooting in. Shooting with a 7D and an 85mm 1.8 lens.

I am going with JPEG. Should I shoot Large or Medium and which one?

I hope in the gym I can get 2.2 with 500 or 640ss and ISO no higher than 1600.

So how did it go? Post up some pics when you can.

Here are a couple of pics. The gym was so crowded and I only had my 85mm lens so I was very restricted
I adjusted these in LR4

Depends on what you're shooting. I've never met a shooter who uses RAW for sports. Takes longer to offload cards, longer to process, etc., just not worth it.

Hi! Workflow takes me about 30-45 seconds to get an image off my card, onto the laptop, toned, cropped, and posted on the internet. I have had the extra wiggle room that RAW provides save quite a few images that would have been lost if I shot jpeg.

How many shooters have you met?

I've never met a shooter who uses a 1DX for sports. That certainly shouldn't indicate that the 1DX isn't a good sports camera.

I shoot RAW for sports 100% of the time. I just shot a race where the kart owner loved the shot I took and ordered it printed 24x 36. Because I shot RAW I was able to crop it to his liking, print and frame to 24x36 and deliver a razor sharp print. If I had limited myself to a jpeg there is no way I would have been able to maintain the same amount of sharpness at that size while on a crop.

One's with SI covers to their credit. JPEG only. As for printing large, I've printed 20x30 posters from JPEG and sharpness wasn't an issue so I don't buy that argument.

Yikes, let's not start another JPEG vs RAW discussion here. In general, RAW gives just a little bit more leeway in post-processing vs JPEG (is there really any arguing this?). Some photographers use this extra leeway and it's worth it to them to shoot in RAW. Others don't need it, or only do very minor post-processing, and are just as happy shooting in JPEG. RAW isn't some magical format that turns OOF pics into SI quality stuff. Every photographer has to weight the pros and cons of what format they want to shoot in and decide for themselves. A sport's guy shooting 50,000 images for a tournament probably benefits from shooting in JPEG only or the person cover the superbowl who needs the image of the game winning touchdown to get out in 25 seconds vs 30.

For me? I have never shot in RAW and regretted it. I have shot in JPEG and later wish that I had shot in RAW.

I was sat next to three guys at a pro boxing match all with 1dx bodies. I was jealous!
