And if you take a look your whites they will be overexposed well before your reds and that is my point if your whites are not clipped then your red are not unless your are under some kind of artificial light.


here in daylight light I have clipped my whites on purpose and even in to the first grey while nothing in the red and yellow flowers have clipped
That totally depends on the image

Are you suggesting this image clipped?

I had to pull the exposure back half a stop (see EV in settings) to get the histogram within the margins but no, it does not appear to be clipped. But it is clear the red will clip first here.

What whites? You are quite correct, however. There is nothing special about a fully red subject as far as the sensor response goes. The meter may go strange, however.

It really depends on your WB for this image it looks like you are using daylight WB so your red channel is being multiplied by a factor of 2 stops an I suspect this is why your reds are so far to the right

Again its more than likely the raw converter that is what you think is clipping the reds because of how WB works, as for the exposure clipping the raw data its more than likely that its at least underexposed by the WB and for daylight WB that would be around 1 to 2 stops

I can't guess what the undies tasted like, but the wine was sublime. Possibly the best cabernet I've ever tasted.
