And that is what the debate is all about.... cleaner images. We all want the same thing
Nope, I disagree here: For me, dr is not about cleaner images
, but about being able to capture a high-contrast scene with movement at all
. This is my one and only point in the whole discussion.
Yes, you can do perfect exposure all the time to make use of 100% of the histogram, you can do extreme postprocessing and lift shadows until you end up with 1 bit resolution, you can even try to bracket scenes with movement and composite bright parts like the sky.
But basically, for me this is about speed, flexibility and freedom
of shooting what you want - ignoring that these matter is lacking a bit of imagination what windy landscape/journalism/daylight spots & wildlife/... might need.
so why are we attacking each other over this. Let's get along and try to be respectful.
+1 for that, the reason why CR is the only forum I participate in are the (usually...) nice and helpful interaction between regulars and new members alike. This and and the invisible pro moderation w/o "cleaning up" threads or throwing rules around in every thread.
I understand it is annoying if people feel some point is ignores because of brand loyalism, or on the other side of trolling or lack of photography knowledge. But personally, I feel we've got a very low level of either fanboyism or trolling around CR - look at some other forums and then return happily to CR :-)
