Re: Test Proper Shadow Recovery

The poor D80 is already struggling with a +2 recovery, imagine at +6. The problem won't be the D7k owners, but the many D80 ones ...

OK, but it would still be interesting to see a 6 stop underexposed image captured by a D80 and by a D7k - and compare both images once compensated +6EV in post processing. I think D7k owners would be pleasantly surprised about their camera's shadow/DR performance
