Re: 400D and a thousand photos later

I have had to make minor adjustments to exposure, but that was also the case with the 350D. I also notice that DPP and ZB require different amounts - what may look slightly dark in DPP looks perfectly exposed in ZB.

I believe Canon have made the metering more accurate and I find that I don't get as many blown highlights as I did with the 350D.

I haven't found a need to add 2/3 stop, like some others and in fact when I tried it, all the shots were overexposed.

The camera really shines with L lenses and perhaps this is the reason I am not seeing the problems the others have.

400D would be an understatement. Photos are sharper and have
smoother detail and with the larger LCD, it is a pleasure to use.

Congratulations for the camera and the lenses.
I'd like to ask you about the exposure: did you by any means
voluntarily overexpose compared to what the camera suggested, or
did you just let teh camera decide?
Did you push the exposure much while RAW processing?
Because you know, there's been a huge talk about the sensitivity,
and to my eye, the exposures of these pictures are just DEAD ON.
And much better than what my 300D would do by default with
contrasted subjects.
