It's funny - I had a heated discussion with my Canon buddy the other day about shooting raw vs. jpg. His #1 argument was with raw files you can change the white balance - I told him my Sony already nails the WB 99% of the time, unlike the Canons I used to own.

While it is true that Sony WB is much better than Canikon WB, it is not entirely reliable, and certainly not 99% of the time, specially if you shoot using artificial light, then the problem becomes a bit more complicated.

Anyhow, shooting raw allows you to correct the WB issue afterward through the raw processing stage without destroying any bits of information.

Setting up the WB in PP with .raw is not the same than setting up WB in the field, btw.
