    Here are some more DNGs for download.

    Throw them into Photoshop, hit "auto" and have your jaw dropped

    No, really - it's amazing how the highlights hold up.
    I exposed those to 100% zebras, to see how much is really there.

    It actually takes a lot of fiddling in Resolve, to get to the same point, what PS does with the "auto" button.

    Lovely images Frank. Threw them into ACR and they were a joy to tinker with. It's proving itself to be just as nice to work with as DSLR raw. Thanks for posting them. Forgive my 2.35 crop

    P.S. no auto

    whoa!
    Pretty amazed by some of those. They seem outrageously over exposed but it's all there. The most promising stuff yet.
    Thanks Frank

    Thanks Frank for sharing! There's a lot in there!

    Could you please compare prores and dng encoding, grabbing the same high dynamic range image with the same more or less correct exposure?

    It's amazing that the "overexposed" comments keep coming up but it's what I've found to be the best way to get the most DR. It's just that people have an immediate reaction to the default look. It's all about how you choose to expose though.

    Frank you mentioned yesterday though you preferred to "starve" the sensor. Do you still feel the same ?

    Also Frank, Resolve has auto grade too. The problem is that it doesn't adjust the DNG settings like exposure. You have to get those close first.

    Ouch... For sure the indie filming landscape is having a little revolution now and there will be some looser in this battle...
    Thanks Frank
