Re: Why ETTR?

Well... I don't know. I read a lot of technical description, but the only answer that really makes sense to me is the shortest one, by DonSC. I have a feeling it is no more complicated than that.

Exactly ... with ETTR you get less noise in the shadows but the result is generally over-exposed, and possibly with blown highlights. Then use raw development to remedy the over exposure and highlights.

Presumably you are already working with lower ISOs for maximizing your dynamic range.
