several months ago one of the members posted an image of a woman in a long dress in a room , back lit if I remember correctly, that had the shadows lifted substantially that illustrated the detail/color in the shadows.

I'm in a discussion with some fellow photographers about that particular ability of the exmor sensor and would like to show them that as an example.

Anyone know of the image I might be referring to? Can't seem to find it with a search.

Thanks., Mike

Mike, this is my example for demonstrating the amazing dynamic range of the D800 files.

I'll add another one from a paragliding day which is maybe even more extreme - manual exposure to get the sky right, and the rest is lifting of shadows.

In short, the D800 allows me to take pictures that have been impossible in this quality before!

For my use, the dynamic range and cleanliness of the files is much more useful than the 36MP.
