Nikon D800E: ETTR Study of Optimal Exposure for RAW, Exposure Latitude, Choice of Color Space, Noise
So you want to shoot JPEG so that your D800E/D800 can deliver 36 megapixel images with 18 megapixels of actual detail with color that has been dulled and flattened and dynamic range that has been truncated several stops?
Two new pages are added to my Nikon D800 / D800E Image Quality Best Practices.
I’ve also added two new workflow pages:
The image at right is NOT blown-out, in spite of the misleading histogram.
I like color. If the reds on this bike aren’t intense, then you are either using a web browser that is not colorspace aware, or you have a display with a poor gamut (get a wide gamut display). Ordinary displays render these reds as some kinds of degraded orange-red.
