Mike, two things:

1. Once you shoot above base ISO, you are less likely to reach FWC for more and more sensels (aside possibly for specular highlights, which is why a clipping % is often included ). So while it may be ETTR as far as the histogram is showing, the sensor is is not ETTRed.

2. Most cameras switch from analogue to digital gain in the ISO1000-ISO3200 region. So shooting at ISO6400 provides no advantage at all if you shot raw.

I do shoot RAW - so what you suggest makes perfect sense and I will try it.  Thanks again.

Best wishes
