In reply to Trevor G, Sep 8, 2013

Trevor, can you clarify something for me? If I understood you correctly, the highlight protection afforded by DR200 and DR400 doesn't write itself into the RAW files as such, but LR recognises a flag and adjusts the shot to the correct exposure (or something like that).

But, what find is that the RAF files taken at DR100/200/400in look identical when they load-up in LR4.4, both in terms of overall exposure and blown highlights. However, if I then take all three back -2EV and / or -100 on the highlights slider, then there is a lot of detail evident in the DR200 and DR400 RAFs that cannot be recovered in the DR100 RAF. So what's happening here? It certainly seems as if the DR200/400 highlight protection is available in RAW...or did I misunderstand??

Oh, just to remind you, this is with the X20 so no EXR hardware involved,
