Re: Automatic tone curve optimization

I think this is one more example pointing to widespread use of an automatic tone curve optimization process, done in low cost cameras and cellphones, but NOT DONE in higher-end "professional" or "enthusiast" cameras such as the esteemed X-E1. Personally I wouldn't have it otherwise, but these low cost cameras are doing some very effective tricks.

My Sony RX1 Has DRO,  multi-frame noise reduction and a few other "tricks" that produce fairly incredible results. In many cases it is not a matter of getting the exposure just right,  it is doing things in camera that could take a person with a lot of skill and time in Photoshop to replicate, like taking six frames and merging them in situations like the beach shot by OP.  I don't usually use the various magic settings, but for some situations they really do the job.

It's not a "low cost" camera!

My main camera is an X-E2 and I have an X-M1 infrared,  so not a Sony fanboy,   in fact quite the opposite except for two cameras,  the RX1 and the RX100 - all three versions.
