Re: One small issue already?

ISO100 is real on Canons, it is ISO50 that are all fake (ISO100 might be fake on a few Nikons here and there)

On many Canon cameras ISO100 tends to not have much more DR than ISO160/200, of course, it gets exposed long so SNR is a bit higher.

From what I understand, ISO 100 is achieved via pulling. I think this is why Canon disables that sensitivity when you enable highlight tone priority mode. Perhaps that's why the Nikon has better retention in the upper right?

From my experience, I've always had better latitude with ISO 200. Perhaps others will have varying opinions and experiences...

I shoot film. I shoot digital. Both are great in their own ways. The nice thing about film is that I can always have the most advanced imaging technology around packed into my 20 year old camera. That's one aspect of digital that I loathe.
