I always thought (perhaps wrongly assumed) that HTP only affected the JPEG preview and was effectively lost with RAW?

Depending on the JPG style settings, HTP may cause more highlights to be pulled down and made visible, which would otherwise clip, but there is a full stop more headroom in the RAW, too. That's why I adopted using it when my cameras provided auto-ISO-M, but without EC. Even though I have EC now, with the 7D2, I still use HTP except when I expect ISOs to go very low (200 to about 500), and there are details in the shadows, in which case HTP is not ideal, especially if you have a camera with lots of banding noise in base ISO shadows, like the 50D or 5D2.

HTP affects the raw, there is no way to toggle that in DPP. ALO is an option that is modifiable independently of the raw, perhaps that is what you are thinking of?

Thanks I might start giving it a go. I normally ignore HTP, auto/high ISO noise reduction etc as I always thought it was irrelevant with RAW.

Reading through the post I see a lot of different opinions. At the end of the day, all that matters is what are your goals, I personally have manual ISO, in order not to get a too much-amplified signal - basically not to record a too bright picture. For Manual mode, I love to train on analog camera, in order to limit the other options, however, I do like to have digital support at times when I don't have enough time to adjust exposure for all the things which are happening around, and needed to be photographed. It does not really matter if you choose to leave auto-ISO or turn to manual, what matters is do you receive the results you wanted in the first place?
