Dynamic range of the A7R
2 months ago

The DR is simply amazing on this camera. I took this photo last weekend in Indonesia. Middle of the day under a tropical sun. If I exposed for the sky, the ancient temple of Borobudur would be black. The other option was a white sky. That's what I went for, thinking that I'd inevitably be disappointed. But that was not to be. When I first looked at the image in ACR (see below), I thought there wasn't much I could do with the sky. Boy, was I wrong. Some playing with the sliders in ACR and some further refinement in CS6, and a dramatic sky emerged from the glare. I'm a happy camper...

Two images: first is converted from ACR with defaults (zeroed sliders, etc.), the second is with some optimisation. Thanks for looking.
