Just a reminder that those blinkies/histogram apply to the resultant JPEG only. No camera on the market AFAIK feature a raw sensor histogram or overexposure display.

Shoot UniWB if you want an in-camera histogram that is close to Raw.

Meh, too much work for practically no advantage over knowing when your camera starts to clip JPEGs.

Agreed if you're shooting JPEGs. But the subject is shooting Raw. The headroom is typically 1 eV or more. Big advantage. And no extra work once you've set UniWB, which you do once when you buy the camera and never have to do again. Worth it for some of us to have an extra eV of DR on most of our shots.
