Re: Shadow & Highlight Recovery C1 Pro 5 vs. LR 4.1

Hi Theodoros,

Thank you for the insightful suggestions. I did this comparison as a quick test as I mentioned; I did not care about the colors, hues, etc. Because after using the LR for two years I am more satisfied with the C1 after receiving the D800E; tested the CNX2 too. Could be a matter of taste but I never liked the overly analytic results some developers end up with. The C1 is "less analytic" to my eyes.. (But that's my personal view, I am a film user-Leica mainly; 10 years long I have been dealing with digital, still trying to love it..)

What I noted, as if the LR seems to be superior in the RANGE of shadow recovery, I think, well into "over 3-stops" territory. If I were a sports photographer then I would go with the LR (but then, I wouldn't be using a D800E ) Just one week has proven to me that the C1 is rather to work on more carefully, well planned, well executed shots demanding less play to correct the parameters set (or shortcomings caused) by the camera but providing more room to "refine" and "better" what was defined by the sensor. For the well exposed shots I am pleased with the C1 more than the LR.. However I will keep them both: The former one functions like a piano-tuner whereas the other one works as a "rescuer" sometimes to work wonders for hopeless shots.

This week I will shoot some sceneries of Istanbul both with the D800E and the Nex-5N. A more precise report would be possible afterwards.
