6D pic has almost 13 EV Histogram in DPP

As you said, more DR is better. It gives you more leverage and more ways to express your artistic intention. Gives you more freedom.

I am giving you (and others) two RAW files to play with, one from 6D and the other from D600. At first glance it may appear that I have underexposed the scene, actually I didn't. Because of the position of the sun and the depth of the cloud there were extreme bright and dark areas in the clouds, I just exposed for the bright areas (even did some +EV, can't remember how much).

Download 6Dtwo and D600two from here.


Of course I can do a lot in the post with 6D file, but I can do a lot more with D600 file.

I rarely come across this kind of situation, so 5DIII remains my favorite tool. But to have that potential in Canon cameras would be a good thing. It is like having clean high ISO, I may hardly use them, but I can when I need to.

In addition to the files mentioned, there were several other CR2 files from the Canon 6D that pushed the dynamic range of the camera.

One of those files caught my eye, and I contacted him and asked if I could use the picture here.
