G1X/SX50: dynamic range question
6 months ago

Just got back from Alaska and was blessed with perfect weather for taking pictures of Denali (aka Mt. McKinley).

Question -- using both a G1X and an SX50, both seemed to struggle with the dynamic range when taking a picture including both the white, icy mountains and dark trees.

I played with both DR and Shadow Correction and they seemed to help, but in hindsight, what advice do you have for dealing with this kind of dynamic range?
