Image parameters (contd.)
The E-3 features a the same 'gradation' setting seen on previous E series cameras. It provides the ability to change the brightness of the image to either low key, normal and high key. In reality all this appears to do is apply +0.3 EV or -0.3 EV adjustment to the metered exposure and subtly adjust the tone curve applied. The three shots below: 1/50 sec (High Key), 1/60 sec (Normal), 1/100 sec (Low Key) and 1/80 sec (auto). (Picture mode Natural used for these samples).
