Recent epiphany in EXR blog article

I am no longer a fan of RAW only mode. It forces L size, which forces 400 ISO at DR400. That alone kills it for me. I like to shoot ISO 100 in bright and contrasty light, so I shoot RAW + JPG. Some say that the RAW is identical to that shot in RAW only mode. Even if true (I am not really certain yet), there is still the JPEG, which does have proper binning.


So for simplicity, shoot DR400 and auto ISO at M size most of the time.

Raw files are not identical, congrats on recognizing now.

But the combination of DR 400 + AUTO ISO can lead to the camera choosing ISO 2x+ higher than DR, in which case the raw files turn out half the size and thus are pre-cooked (pixel-binned + different tone-curve behavior). So maybe you could warn your readers of that possibility to keep them from running into an unexpected wall?

And what I do not understand about your EXR article is that you don't edit old stuff out. For example, further down the article you still write that you are using "RAW only", this is unnecessarily confusing to readers.
