I was watching a video by TNG (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MA_8U...&feature=g-u-u) where he discusses in detail. Specifically, he talks about the dynamic and tonal ranges for example on the D4 are widest at around 75 despite base being 100.
He also suggested in a comment the only disadvantage to using an below base is the affect on . I've done some research and apparently others believe 50 for example is created artificially (apparently the same as 100 +1 compensation, then artificially reduced) which reduces the ability to recover blown highlights in PP.
Eh I'm not following to be honest. DxO Mark (http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Pub...or-performance) seems to suggest for the D800 the best dyanmic range, SNR and colour depth is around 75. So, should I where ample is available use 75 rather than 100 (base)? What's the disadvantage in doing this besides the affect on ?
