Re: GH2 blown highlights

On the G3, there is a button on the back that lets you lock the exposure. (I assume there is a similar function on your camera as well.)

When shooting scenes with a wide exposure range, I will compose and focus, then move the camera towards a brighter area (In A mode, the shutter speed will change as the auto exposure resets). I look for an exposure that hopefully gives me some details in the midtones and maybe shadows, without the highlights blowing out. I then set the exposure lock, recompose (sometimes refocus) and take my shot. Sometimes I'll have to retake the image if it is too dark or bright.

Remember to turn this feature off for other shots/exposure.

Best, David.
