Minimising the White Disc Problem in the X10

I'm puzzled as to why folk don't read their camera manuals, or heed advice to shoot high contrast scenes in one of the 2 DR modes.

While this won't always eliminate the white disc problem, it will reduce its intensity on many occasions.

These images should tell the story, starting with EXR DR100 and finishing with EXR DR1600.

The solution?

If using PASM select DR400 for any outside shot on a bright, sunny day . (I use it all the time without penalty.

If you prefer P&S shooting, just select EXR mode and the D-Range Priority, and choose DR1600 . Once again, there does not seem to be any penalty with shooting DR1600 on bright, sunny days.

For maximum protection you also need to select ISO400 (fixed, not Auto ISO in PASM) . This can cause a prioblem at wide open apertures of over-exposure. Either stop down or use an ND filter.
