I have been playing for a few days with the GH5 and I have noticed that in addition to the obvious metering, histograms and zebra pattern the camera has a live waveform monitor. Does anyone use it? Do people with external recorders or monitors use it? I am using HLG to shoot HDR but this applies equally to log or standard shooting
Hi all, In the recent "Wetpixel Ask the Pros" column on wide-angle techniques, one of the questions posed was whether the pros "expose to the right"? Expose to the Right (ETTR) is a technique that deliberately biases exposure towards the highlight end of histogram. The reason for doing this is that nearly 80% of the sensor information is actually recorded in one third of the tonal range-at the highlight end. By exposing the image "perfectly", distributing the sensor information uniformly throughout the histogram range, effectively we are discarding a large amount of image data. For a more in-depth explanation please see Wikepedia or The Luminous Landscape. The technique has generated lots of debate! So, with this in mind, it would be great to know how the Wetpixel community control exposure. Do you Expose to the Right? Or do you go for a uniform distribution? Personally, I try to expose to the right, particularly in scenes that are well lit. In darker scenes, I find it can be a challenge to achieve. The ability of usable high ISO with modern cameras really helps. Adam
