Re: DMillier ...

Ok, let's look at it this way.  There is fact and there is what people think.  if you are the kind of person who prefers your opinion to fact, so be it.  I'm not.  I want to know how it works.

I've done my own tests:  it appears to me that when I shoot DR400 in EXR mode it provides about 2 stops more DR than shooting DR100.

I could be wrong and I'm very happy to be proved wrong but I can't actually think of a single reason why you might expect L mode to do anything other than shoot 12MP of non hardware enhanced image.  That's the way EXR works: in 12MP mode you get a regular sensor, in 6MP mode you get EXR dynamic range expansion via a HDR blending effect.

Please explain to me how you achieve this in L mode...
