Re: For Iliah Borg - D100 Characteristic Curves Test

It helps to know he dynamic range of the sensor so you know how much EV compensation to use when metering for highlights. For example, with the results of my tests, I know that if I want to spot meter off the feathers of a swan in bright sunlight without blowing highlights, I can spot meter with +2.0 or +2.5 EV compensation and get what I want. It just so happens that there are a lot of people who have problems in the same type of situation because they do not know the characteristics of their sensor.

Knowledge can only help!

You guys are freaking me out. Can I still take good images without
knowing how to do the math? Yes, I think I can. Sometimes to much
is put into something when it really dose not matter for the
average guy, like me. ;> ). Thanks for all the hard work
photogenic. I do use your curves, because I like the result, I will
leave the rocket science to someone else.
