Is DRO worth it and a DXO mark question...
Jun 8, 2012

Hi,

As i'm getting more familiar with my A57, there are certain things i'm observing....no better place than this to ask/share these....

1. DRO: For some reason, i found it doesn't work...??? Am i missing something? Isn't it supposed to preserve highlights from blowing? My Nikon 5100 (which i replaced with A57) had this "insert the name" feature which sounded similar but it did preserve the highlights...am i using it properly....help !!

2. Face detect: wonderful feature, it just works. But, it affects the exposure in order to expose the face properly....so again blown highlights. I tried DRO with FD on and other combinations, but basically with FD on, i blew the highlights most of the time...(in contrasty light)

3. related to the question 1: is there a way to protect the highlights when shooting fast...?

4: DXO mark: how much is 350 less points in low light ratings? 1 stop? 2 stops?

Thanks and
regards,
nandadevieast
