Quote:Once upon a time people used to preach ETTR (Expose To The Right).I shoot a lot in manual mode actually, at -1, but not usually at - 4 stops.. :blink:
I always argued with them that the best exposure for a shot was the correct exposure. But no, there was this school of thought that you had to push the histogram as far to the right as possible. Maybe they were a bunch of rednecks. Who know?
Finally, people have got it that with just about any camera these days as long as the highlights are more or less protected your image will be fine.
Getting 4 stops underexposure? That can only happen with people who insist on shooting 100% in M mode.
But that's getting into shooting A vs M, and let's not go there.
The D750 has even better DR (14.5ev) and I get about 1-1.5 stops less noise, (which is being returned for the Nikon shutter recall.....a freebee btw!)
