Thanks Joakim & Allen.
Sorry guys, I don't really agree that we cannot underexpose with CMOS, maybe you have issues with Canon CMOS but I have zero issues pushing my RX1 sensor 3 to 4 stops or even 5 stops to IS 25600 and no banding. And I pushed only one stop with the M240 from ISO1600 to slightly above 3200, not even close to 2 stops to ISO6400. However I agree with you all, better to expose for the scene accurately. BTW, I'm not a fan of exposing to the right, it seems to be an internet myth? You lose...Show more →
Its not internet myth, it just works for certain cams. You lose color accuracy only when you dont know how to correct it (ofc its not that easy as it might seem ).
If one has thing like RX1, you simple dont need to worry. Its Sony, you can do crazy stuff with exposure. Even more when you have "native" Nikon sensor, like D3s. But if you have for example Fuji S5 or Kodak SLR/n, you will pretty soon figure, that reasonable over-exposure is your friend (especially in SLR/n case, heavy shadow banding). Same goes to old 5D or 5DMK2. Yea and A900 profits from bit of over-exposing too (noisy shadows).
Just cause something is written on da interwebz doesnt mean its same for every camera. Each camera needs to be learned. Sensors are unique and manufacturers approach is different.
I saw so many ppl failed and still see them failing, cause they simply dont learn own camera. And processing, that has huge impact these days too.
M240 doesnt have Sony sensor, so dont treat it like if it had. Its not about making your camera fail, its about making it work, which obviously is harder.
