I dunno....I find with CS6 that there are so many interpretations that can now be achieved directly in the raw convertor. I can specifically brush in effects where I please. The algorithms are totally different than what was in previous ACR.

I agree. The question at hand is what can be done with C1 Pro 6?

Great detail from the D800E for sure when I was pixel peeping.

Not bad for an old Nikon AF-S 17-35mm f/2.8D, aye? Some will tell you this lens is too outdated for the D800E.

Just my three cents. (Used to be two cents.....but you know....inflation)

I can only get dos centavos for mine.

The idea behind photography is not to create a non existing light source that will counter lit the shadows that the existing source (the sun in our case) provides. It's against the idea of photography to do this... It would be different for a front lit scene where the developer tunes the light of the light source and different in a back lit scene as this one....

The human eye does not perceive the tree trunk as black. It is fully lit with detail texture and color. It is the failure of photographic technologies that renders it black.

The human eye is different to photography or cinema or imaging in general Robin, the human eye adjusts automatically it's iris (aperture) depending in what it observes..., also the brain uses our memory to adjust ISO... enter a dark room and record how long you remain still for your memory to store all the info you need so that you can then move... all this is irrelevant to photography or developer... In photography we record (reflected) light to symbolize, characterize, code, decode ...etc, so that we can please the aesthetics of a recipient... pleasing aesthetics is what makes it art. That is why things like resolution or sharpness are less important than DR or tonality that in sense are what provide detail... Thus DR extension can only be of some importance IN RELEVANCE with tonality... Now back to the subject, ...isn't it impressive that in C1, you can have more LL info while the "lows" have more "weight" (darker + contrast)? Or that it can keep the extension in HLs while also keep more "weight" (brighter + contrast)? Clearly it's tonality is much better than consumer products like LR or Aperture and the D800E can show its full potential there because it will release its microcontrast difference than anyother DSLR (including D800 "plain") just like if it was a MFDB... May be after you get to know it very well, you try the comparison between the two versions of the camera, you'll be surprised!
