Experiments with Nikon D600 exposure - seems too aggressive

2nd set of experiments with D600 exposure

So I took some test shots incorporating the suggestions above. Initially, the results were inconclusive but upon further testing it appears that the AF point does influence the D600 metering sometimes. In any case, the D600 initially appears to show a lot of lost highlights but actually much of those highlights are recoverable.

As to why it risks so many highlights in the first place, it is either some sort of ETTR, or an attempt to expose correctly for the subject without much regard for the highlights. It seems to be the latter.

Anyway, here is a more detailed post about it fwiw: http://betterfamilyphotos.blogspot.com/2012/09/further-experiments-with-nikon-d600s.html
