Auto ISO performance
« on: May 29, 2013, 07:09:35 AM »
Background...1Ds3 and generally shoot in manual mode, setting exposure in LV while utilizing the all color histogram, in an  ETTR technique.
This method gives me a Lightroom histogram that is just shy of grazing the right side, in my mind, the perfect ETTR technique.

Question...will the newer generation cameras with auto ISO, specifically the 5D3, cough out comparable results?
The things you do for yourself die with you, the things you do for others live forever.

Sure...if you manually set exposure to the right.  If you don't use ETTR, the camera will always expose for 18% gray, which is what it's designed to do.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
