Photographic Dynamic Range versus ISO Setting
Nice link, thanks! I see why you stated the D600 had good max PDR. Not one Canon even comes close.
This quote comes from a dated post (2011) and I agree with the member who replied to a post that stated that the Zone System does not apply to dSLR photography.
First, I'm new to this Forum, so it shouldn't be surprising that I do searches to see if a topic has already been explored.
I do have my 2 cents. I think like Ansel himself did, that automation should not be over-relied upon. A lot of advancements have been made in digital camera technology, but I think all photographers, beginners and old hands alike need to keep tabs on these techniques as they not only work, but ingrain a better internal knowledge and understanding of one of the fundamentals of photography - light.
I'm going to spin off a new thread to explore how many members still apply the Zone System.
Thanks for replying! I tend to believe that the fundamental "truths" of light, i.e. it's physical properties, are not affected by newer technology.
They are timeless - at least until new discoveries prove otherwise.<wink>. Perhaps some of the disputes that arise in the digital age are more
the desire of craftsman to conflate film and digital photography into a kind of unified theory and practice instead of accepting their obvious
differences. For example, you can take a cab to Times Square or you can take a bus but that doesn't make a cab and a bus the same thing even
if your destination is the same.
