ETTR with single colour clipping
2 months ago

Maybe not specific to ETTR, but single colour clipping is not shown on either the histogram or the post-exposure blinkies on the G3 (is it to do with the way I set it or global?). Shoot a mostly red scene, dial in the compensation to move the histogram to the right, check with blinkies in the post exposure playback, all hunky dory. Back home on the computer it's "what the ..." and sure enough the red channel is hopelessly clipped.

Now have to set the default playback to the one with all separate histograms for different colours and check if any one of them clipped. This has resulted in more negative compensation than positive. Out of the window goes the +2 to +3EV compensation rule. Now it's more like -1EV for many shots. Hmm. Back to the bracket like hell and ignore ETTR mode of operation.
