I don't think it's a small thing where an underexposed shot on the Canon would be unsalvageable, could likely be on the Nikon. Especially considering the fact that in photography as I understand it, shooting thousands of images is worth it to get the one "money shot".

Again, you're cherry picking a single aspect of the camera and judging it for everyone by that one aspect. There are many more aspects than just that. For some people that will be enough, for other people, other aspects will be more important.

e.g. some may find the Canon more reliable (for them) in getting an in focus shot in the first place and so worrying about recovering a poorly exposed shot is rather secondary for them.

I think the whole AF thing is overdone. I can honestly say my keeper rate is just as high if not higher with my d810 than it was with my 5d3. But again that is just an opinion, but a real world opinion compared to many who comment yet have not owned both bodies.

I'm sure the 5d4 will be a leap ahead. I just can't wait for all the Canon fan boys who are claiming they don't need DR to start gushing over the 5d4s DR if indeed it does improve lol

Like the relative AF performance between the two bodies (whatever that difference may be) for the vast majority of people the DR difference is a non issue.

And yet imagine the response if a camera came out that had the same DR as the naked eye...

The first digital cameras exceeded the DR capabilities of the naked eye

It is the brain combining multiple exposures (at different exposure levels and focus distances) and applying expectations to come to a perceived image.

I've always wanted a lambo! Maybe someday I'll get to shoot one. It's as close as I'll ever get to owning one


I want to die peacefully, in my sleep, like my grandfather.
Not screaming, terrified, like his passengers.

Definitely feel the same way! My job definitely allows me to experience a lot of cars that I will never own!

That is the definition of irony. Here come drool over these fine automobiles. We're just not gonna pay you enough to ever own one! Like a horse chasing a carrot or something.

Ive never been able to figure this out. How do you get the background black with a well exposed subject?

The flamingo was standing where the background was quite dark already ( but not as dark as it is now). I then processed the photos (raw) file by decreasing exposure a little, shadows a little, adding a little highlights until it was visually pleasing to me

Ok, i know it can be done with flash. But i doubt your using ocf when shooting at 300mm. Well done!
