Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 Planar

Examples: Sunflowers (Sony NEX-7)

The Zeiss Touit 32mm f/1.8 Planar was shot here on the 24-megapixel Sony NEX-7.

These sunflower images proved challenging to deal with: sunflowers deliver a nearly black recording in the blue channel and are very “hot” in the red channel.

Furthermore, most camera histograms show the bright yellow petals as blown-out when in fact another entire stop of exposure is appropriate (an unfortunate and fairly common reality proven by examining the NEX-7 raw file with RawDigger).
