Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Dynamic Range - Try it for yourself, conclude for yourself: 5D III vs. A7r« on: September 28, 2014, 09:16:02 PM »
To the OP: let's see you capture a scene that includes the actual sun disc recorded in the EV range and lift shadows from a shaded area with the A7r. This is the only situation in which my Canon gear cannot cope.
Of course you will fail. I know because I have already tried with a D800. That's why myself and hundreds, nay thousands of 'landscape' orientated photographers are still using Canon.
you mean like this one?..
good luck using a Digic 4 or 5 Canon for a shot like the first one, you would not be able to re-tone the image to look like it does to the eye.
How does a Canon user cope with such a shot? Cry and go home? Spend many hours in post, trying to tame the stripes and fix the muddy dark tones to have some sort of semi-realistic texture? HAHAHA! Bracket?!?
the last 2 in that post could even be done with a 7D, not that I'd chose one if I had an ABC alternative available.
Yeh, you can't do that with a Canon..........
That example was only like a half stop or stop lift of lower mid-tones, not near black areas.
It was a +100 shadow lift, basically a two stop lower lift, plus a modest exposure lift.
If that isn't "enough" then here it is with a totally unrealistic lift, a +100 shadow lift and a 1.5 stop exposure lift on the bottom, looks kind of ridiculous even though I held the sky back with a filter in post. Don't forget this is with a 2002 4.2MP camera with a >3.5 lift in post at 100%.
