Re: JPEG is an exception

Equally as well, you have your choice of what to do with the lowlights.  You might prefer to keep some of the lowlights where they are or boost then to a lesser extent, and without further penalty.

If all that were involved would be multiplying by 4 (boosting ISO 2 stops exactly), then dividing by four (reducing again 2 stops exactly), there might be no penalty, but this is rarely how it works out.
