Re: Hardware DR vs Software DR

Oh and Joms I agree with you about the EXR thing, it just goes to show that hardware DR enhancement isn't necessarily better than internal software DR enhancement and processing of the direct RAW files.

I say this particularly because HS20 and HS30 users were still having to use a -0.3 EV compensation even with M size DR 400, I dont think that's necessary at all with L size DR 400 as it protects highlights significantly better and when you resize both resolutions to the same size the noise different is very little.

Alex, my claim is that you will get mode detail and recover same or almost all highlights and shadows using LSize RAW but for some instances, pixel binning of M size DR400 will produce better DR. Since it is interesting, would you please create a separate thread and let's discuss your findings there? Thanks.
