Re: Hardware DR vs Software DR

Alex, from a technical point of view, L size will protect highlights better because it's less sensitive. In M mode, the sensor uses pixel binning, which means half as many pixels, twice as sensitive, whereas L mode means twice as many pixels, half as sensitive. So the highlights don't get blown out as easy in L mode.

This is why the rigidly sticking to M mode thing makes me chuckle. I use L mode for well lit shots most of the time, and i will switch to M for either low light shots, or more burst shot speed. Neither one is 'better' than the other, each is better only in certain circumstances.

It's also why M mode would show less fringing, as it's white-ing it out i assume!
