I used camera raw 7.1 in PS
Yes, it recovered the shadows, but can you actually use this for anything above 600px wide? How bad is the banding and noise in the shadows at 100% view now?
My 5D3 images look absolutely TERRIBLE when i do this.
I don't print images but if you look for it i am sure it is there.. Sorry, you will have to look elsewhere in the forum for a technical feedback
However, I do a lot of extreme high ISO work, and there the 5D MK III has a tiny but noticible DR advantage.
I've seen some of your shots posted in this forum - No doubt one of the Gurus around here.
