Had the opportunity to shoot a Guiness Cup game in Toronto last night. Here are a few of my pictures and please feel free to critique my images.

Also, I know this question has been asked before but do you shoot RAW or JPEG when shooting sports? I normally shoot in RAW but decided to take most of these pictures in JPEG mode because I was afraid of the buffering on my 1D M3 and losing a great pic.

Canon 1D MKIV, 1D MKIII, Canon 70-200 f2.8, Canon 400 f2.8, Canon 16-35mm f2.8.

I always shoot in jpg for that reason. Also, the editing of raw just takes too long :-)

I for one have never understood this logic. In this day and age, especially in programs like Lightroom, editing, cropping and tweaking a RAW image takes me as much time as it would a JPEG image, so given that, when shooting sports where lighting can sometimes be an issue, why not take advantage of the flexibility that RAW provides in terms of allowing for better adjustment of lighting issues.

I can understand it if a client needs JPEG images right out of camera for instant deadlines or whatever, but if you want the most flexibility and latitude in post, shoot RAW and then export to JPEG.

As to the buffering issue, if you work on timing, buffering is not an issue. I have found that my FPS drops only near the end of long sequences, which I rarely need, but by then the peak action is already over. If you can shoot peak action at say 5-7 frame bursts, then you should have the pic and not need to worry about missing it because of buffer issues.

Really like #2!
I always shoot RAW. I don't machine gun shoot either so the buffer is never an issue.

Well, editing a load of pics for galleries, uploading etc etc takes quite a bit of computer time. I learned that using a professional level camera body can be set up so that although there are advantages with raw for some things, it just isn't a valid use of my time. Doesn't seem much point in paying big bucks for equipment and not using it to advantage. Horses for courses. Just how my workflow has developed since shooting sports ....

Excellent point! I noticed that the JPEGs looked great in Lightroom without me having to do very little editing.

With my workflow and just about any other pro's workflow there is no difference between processing RAW vs JPG. But... the benefits of shooting RAW are great considering the information stored in the file and what can be recovered.

Very Much look forward to the Madrid v Man U pics.
I generally ish shoot RAW all of the time, but there are odd occasions i will drop to jpeg if i want a longer burst, birds in flight, at the racetrack etc.
Don't tie yourself down to any format just try and make sure all the important shots are in RAW heh heh.
That should be one helluva game btw.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo will miss out on a reunion with former club Manchester United after being ruled out their clash in Michigan.

United will play the Spanish giants on the outskirts of Detroit, where a record 109,000 crowd is expected at Michigan Stadium, more commonly known as the 'Big House' as it is the third-biggest sports arena in the world.

Having already beaten Inter Milan and AS Roma, a victory for Louis van Gaal's team will guarantee them a place in the International Champions Cup final.

Speaking on Friday evening, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Ronaldo would not feature, wanting to keep him fit for the European Super Cup clash against Sevilla in Cardiff on August 12.

"Ronaldo is working hard but we won't put him out on Saturday," the former Chelsea boss said.

"He will begin training with the squad in Spain after the tour as we plan to use him in the Super Cup."
