Honestly, the H.264 looks better, and it could have been even better.

Yes , I agree in this case , this was quick comparison, usually when I work with H.264 I have always acceptable results , with little bit more thinking process in it ! and Scale of RAW is too small to beat H.264 at this moment on 550D

Obviously H.264 looked better, he was shooting at 20 FPS and the grade on the RAW footage wasn't good. But look at how much more range you get out of the raw footage. It clips so much later than the H.264 and its much sharper.

The H.264 footage wasn't shoot properly, if it was shoot with CineStyle with the flattest settings possible (sharpness, contrast, saturation all the way down), and also with a proper exposure, and with Tragic Lantern with ~160 mbs All-I, then the dynamic range would have been even better than what you see in this RAW example.
