Ahhhhh the beauty of this new 1Dx2 and 5D4 sensors
Going to post a couple of images here. yesterday I was shooting this shot Natural light and clouds were going in/out and creating bad shadows. The area in the lower left was completely dark and very little detail. So I turned on my ab600, shot it bare bulb as was able to get some detail in the area but still,in general, just a crapola exposure.
The beauty of the new canon sensor for the 5D4 and the 1Dx2. I knew I could shoot for highlights and take my chances in post with darks in shadows.
I pushed darks and shadows by about 4 stops and was able to fix this right in LR w/o any any loss of IQ and loss of detail in shadows and darks.
Where the new technology really comes in handy is in darker situations and in really bad contrast light like this shot. So This is what makes the 5D4 and the 1Dx2 sensor such a good reason to upgrade from a 5D2 and 5D3......5D2 Cant do this. 5D3 is a push at best
Here is the before and after with the new sensor. all done in LR...about 2-4 mins to save
This is now just a proof file that my client can make a decision about. I can make this pop on a final edit if they choose it. So glad Canon has a great sensor for us to work with
