Re: Anyone successful exposing D800 to the right ?

With my D700 and D800 I shoot as far to the right as possible with the histogram just barely touching the right side and a few blinkies.  Perhaps I am giving up some shadow detail but I would much rather have no blown out areas and some dark shadows than blown highlights which I generally find distracting.

It certainly depends on the image but with a white bird like a puffin I hate any blown out areas since feather detail on the chest or head is what makes the shot IMHO.
