Re: F900EXR - I'm in love

No in M size you can have DR400 at any ISO, it doesn't boost the ISO it takes two exposures, each with one half the total resolution (hence final output of M size.)

The reason I do not advocate DR100 at either L size or M size is that these EXR sensors have LESS DR at DR 100 than conventional sensors do (as per testing at techradar and photoreview.au) by about one stop- so while DR400 is actually two stops more DR than DR100 it is only one stop more DR than non EXR cameras- still very good, but the main point is do not use DR100 for any reason. I would even take the noise penalty of L size DR400 over L size DR100.  Because when resized to 1600x1200 all of these have about the same amount of noise no matter what DR setting is used- however the dearth of DR with DR100 is VERY noticeable.
