Re: Does the D800 rocognize snow?

It's quite dark.  Metering just isn't all tha smart yet (if ever). Also, there is no need to fear highlight clipping in snow scenes - bright ones anyway. Even dialing in +.7, 1, or 1.3 EV you are very unlikely to use the right end of your histogram.

Written in snowy Wisconsin.
