Looks like Ricoh may have done the first or one of the first "expose to the right" metering-exposures ever. I saw they have a priority for highlights through the frame, which is new.

This would be interesting to preserve highlights at all costs and the famous "cameras should do expose to the right" that Michael Reichman from Luminous Landscape used to talk about.

I have not tried, so I can't be sure, but looks like that's what it tries to do from the manual.

Protecting the highlights is not what ETTR is about, that's "exposing for highlights".

It's ETTR if you shoot an empty, evenly-lit white wall without exposure compensation and it comes out white rather than gray.

I just heard about this for the first time yesterday in Mattius Burling’s review of the GRIII.  I am pretty sure he said he had used it before on a Nikon camera and finds it pretty useful.  Maybe it was a Nikon model that uses a sony sensor, so that would be the common denominator between Sony, Ricoh and some Nikon models.    Sounds like a great idea to me.
