explain please

You haven't said why it is bad. You haven't explained what would replace it.

It seems to what you are saying is that since cameras are better, we can afford to be more sloppy.

As you have found.

ETTR was a good Idea back in the early days of digital imaging.

I was there. It was a fair solution.

But that was then, this is now.

And imaging sensors and the accompanying Processing Engines are many, many times better. There has also been an equal improvement in noise reduction capability in our editing programs.

All that adds up to ETTR being a technique that has outlived its practical life.
