Puppy in the snow!
Posted By: codiac2600, 02-28-2008, 01:48 PM

Tried out the new Dynamic Range Optimizer and I've got to admit it really works. Exposes plenty of shadow detail while NEVER blowing out the highlights. The K20D is super accurate in terms of exposure even in the show where the most I had to comp was about .3EV I believe.

Enjoy!

I see, very good examples, its like the camera handles the Lightroom's Highlight Recovery and Fill Light tools, right?

Does the optimizer have adjustments you can do?

Here are a few without the Dynamic Range Optimizer. My puppy was still properly exposed, but the highlights blew a bit.

Great "model" and some fun pics. There is defintely a difference between the 1st and second set. Even the econd set looks good though. Snow is tough with sunlight and the camera handled it very well. Thanks for posting these Chris.

So that's how you did it! And all this time I thought you were down in the snow.

Thanks Chris, great work

Are there any down-sides, shooting in this mode? what accactly does the camera do? how does it expand its DR? does it take multiple shots with different exposures?
