Re: What about using contrast adjustment in the camera?

That thought had occured to me as well. If you can capture so mudh dynamic range in a RAW, then the CCD must be picking up this range, too. If that's the case, why can't there be an in-camera option to "preserve maximum dynamic range" via an ultra-low-contrast setting while writing to a JPEG? That would be a VERY handy tool to have!

Hi Andreas,

I agree with you. Whenever I shoot jpgs, I always keep my contrast
set to it's absolutley minimum value to try to preserve all the
detail I can. It's not as dramatic as what's possible with RAW,
but it does help.
