    As previously noted, the value of ETTR'ing will vary from scene to scene (in this case there's only about a 1-stop advantage but often there are 2 or more stops available) and depending one's ...

    I used an Oly EM-5 for that shot, but I've also used numerous cameras with less DR than your FZ200.  Per DXOMark your FZ200 has a DR of 10.8 EV at base ISO, which is actually rather respectable by ...

    David's strategy is not inconsistent with ETTR in the sense that ETTR shooters, like David, also set their camera to produce as flat a tone curve as possible.  Since the histogram and blinkies and ...

    ETTR results in a better signal-to-noise ratio. The crops show that. The "full image" came from the ETTR version.  No additional processing was applied. The lack of visible noise is due to the ...
  • Replied in An example
    I agree that ETTR isn't for someone starting out, but I disagree that for the "experienced" shooter, utilizing ETTR is anymore difficult or distracting than any other form of manual ...
  • Better DR implies less shadow noise to begin with which implies less noise when lifting shadows which implies less of need to ETTR in the first place. Whether or not DR is increased by ETTR'ing ...
  • Replied in The Big Reveal
    Let that be a lesson to anyone who ever dares to disagree with me. :-D If you had offered comparable but non-identical samples, the success rate would have been considerably lower and the grousing ...
  • Ummmm...try using the "Comparison" image size option before you do your Sherlock Holmes impersonation. You need to do a visual reality check before attributing the A crop to the 1 inch sensor.
  • A pretty good article that I wasn't aware of.  Thanks for sharing.  Please be sure to also read Iliah Borg's first set of comments in response to the article.  He corrects some of the errors in ...
  • Your poll results tells you more about the observational/analytical skills of your poll respondents than it tells you about the cameras themselves. As you've seen from my prior posting, if you ...
  • ETTR is no more useful for DSLRs and m4/3 than it is for any other format that supports raw. I wouldn't describe ETTR as a technique for maximizing DR, although increased DR might result from it ...
  • It is if you know what to look at. A=Canon 700D B=Sony Alpha7 C=Sony RX100IV D=Olympus EM5
  • Replied in Thank YOU!!!
    I have an EPL1 but haven't used it in years.  My recollection of its proclivities matches well with the findings of Imaging Resources here regarding the WB, color and exposure for the EPL5.  I ...
  • Replied in A bit of C&C.
    The blog post you reference is well known.  Note that it was published in 2009, which is fairly early on in the development of ETTR theory, practice and technique and when there was still quite a ...
  • Replied in A bit of C&C.
    There have been countless threads on optimizing exposure by use of ETTR. Another one isn't necessary here.  If you want to learn the basics, start with gollywop's articles here on DPReview (he has ...
  • Replied in A bit of C&C.
    VSCO filters are NOT an alternative to optimizing exposure in-camera. Your ability to use the VSCO filters for desired effect will only be enhanced by using optimal exposure (i.e., ETTR technique) ...
  • Replied in Does C&C help?
    A famous example of the relativity of perception of brightness here .
  • Just and FYI for those who don't know, there are only two bridges that access the Cape and really only one major "highway" that runs the length of the Cape.  During the summer, Saturdays are just ...
  • May God have mercy on his soul if he's trying to drive to the Cape on a summer Saturday...
  • Just a reminder for anyone interested in keeping track here (never easy when Sergey is involved), Sergey replied that the crop comparison in my first post is "barely noticeable" and he also ...
