Re: Expose to the Right vs DR Auto, DR200, DR400

DR 200 and 400 expose to the left to make sure (over-sure) not to clip highlights in jpegs, where they can not be recovered. Less of a worry shooting raw because there is more highlight headroom there.  But still, as with slide film in the old days, digital file shadows can usually be recovered to some extent while truly burned out highlights can not. I used to love overexposing tri-x, but don't do that with digital.
