Canon 5D Mark III: ETTR Study of Optimal Exposure for RAW, RAW vs JPEG Exposure Latitude and Sharpness

Three new pages are added to my Canon 5D Mark III review in DAP.

Like the Nikon D800/D800E and the Olympus OM-D E-M5, the Canon 5D Mark III has the potential for much superior image quality when proper ETTR techique is used. Color shooters should be paying attention here, but anyone shooting for black and white should pay particular attention to the potential, as the ETTR study shows.

The image at right is NOT blown-out, in spite of the misleading histogram. It is in fact the best possible use of the sensor potential.
