Update 24 May 2017: the high ISO highlight destruction bug shown on this page has been fixed in Adobe Camera Raw 9.10.1. Images from the fixed version have been added to the series. This page remains as originally written in all other respects.
This page shows how Adobe Camera Raw 9.9.0 destroys a huge amount of perfectly-exposed high-key detail at ISO 3200 (and almost certainly other ISO value as well). No ACR settings could be found that avoid this wantonly destructive behavior.
