Re: D7100 Non-pushed looks fine - maybe.

I wrote up the following based on the image at the above link being a D7100 file. I killed the post once I discovered that the EXIF says it is a D5200.  Might want to check into that. Regardless, if there is no color shift in non-pushed or moderately pushed D7100 files, I have no problem with it.

They're D7100 NEFs whose EXIF has been hacked to look like D5200 files so that ACR/LR will handle them.

I was cruising a D7100 Flickr Group too looking for good samples and noticed an EXIF that said D5200 and thought that person must've posted in the wrong forum but now I get it.

Pushing 5 EV? Would be too much for me. I find the shadow area in this image more than acceptable - without any push.

The need to draw detail out of every shadow may be going overboard these days. High ISO junkies (with discerning tastes) are finding brickwalls at much lower ISOs than what is actually being offered. I say it is the same with the shadows. Still beats Canon right?

Sometimes shadows are not really shadows but instead the lower end of a high DR image that has been exposed to protect highlights.

If your D5100 file shows no color shift at a 5 EV push, good on it. Is this pushing in a localized area or pushing the whole image? Could be, if a 5 EV push is a reasonable expectation, the D7100 camera profile needs some fine tuning in whatever software you are using. Or maybe the firmware.

It's a global push. I tried a custom profile based off the x-rite chart in the image. I can create a profile for base ISO image (not pushed) but not the pushed image; apply the base ISO profile to the push image doesn't help.

Did I read someone to say that the sensor in this camera is not a Sony?

It's been reported to be a Toshiba sensor.
