Re: 7D settings for best RAW dynamic range?
In reply to Asylum Photo, Jun 25, 2012

From what I've seen it appears that the best dynamic range from a 7D comes from ISO 200 to 800.

For maximum dynamic range I would shoot with HTP on at ISO 400 or 800. HTP shifts the ISO so shooting HTP ISO 200 is like shooting at ISO 100.

Of course shoot RAW and process in DPP.

ALO can be changed in DPP so its setting doesn't matter when you are shooting.

edit: Properly expose your image, do not under expose and plan on pulling detail out of the shadows. Canon already does a good job at preserving highlights. Turn on your 'blinkies', and adjust your exposure compensation using those.
