Some thoughts around the D800, dynamic range, and LR 4
May 27, 2012

I've noticed several posts showing off the amazing dynamic range of the D800, especially its ability to boost the shadows without increasing noise too much. I ran a small test with my D700 to see how well it did, and to my surprise its still holding up pretty well. And I think the major reason for this is the raw converter in Lightroom 4, which I've seen D800 users have used with great success too. So I wonder how much of the buzz surrounding the DR of the D800, can be attributed to the recent edition of Lightroom? What do others think?

Here are some images illustrating how LR 4 recovered a 4 stop under-exposed image:
