Situation where dynamic range is an issue and subject moving fast

This is true about motion, but to be honest, most situations where
dynamic range is an issue (or where precise exposure matters enough
to the photographer) IS when the subject is static. It is rare to
see a dynamic range example using a non-static subject.

I had to scan and prepare for the Web a series of prints taken with many different cameras by many occasional photographers: working from RAW rather than from prints would be a delight !

But the subject was young peoples of every origin (i.e. different skin brightness) meeting together in unpredictable and mostly bad lighting conditions. Imagine you are a pro and have an assignment for that !!!

It looks like RAW is useful both for pros and occasional photographers!

As you can see, amateurs press the trigger where/when pros would not, but...
