Overexposure Paranoia with the DP2 Quattro


deutsch_s1

Before you can shoot technically good photos with a new camera, you first have to familiarize yourself with it. You should follow your own instinct instead of listening to other people’s opinions. I made the mistake of relying too much on reviews – especially on the allegations of the Quattro having more dynamic range in the shadows but less in the highlights than the Merrills. Without having detected a DR problem on my first photo tour, I already started implementing a solution (underexposure) into my photographic approach on my second tour. I believe this is called a „solution to a problem that doesn’t exist“. 😉 As expected, I suffered a surprise when I edited my photos in SPP. The photos were pointlessly underexposed. If I had exposed them longer, the highlights still wouldn’t have been burned out. Had I exposed the photos just the way I usually do with the DP Merrills, I wouldn’t have had to increase exposure in SPP by 1EV, and thus increasing noise in the process. Well, I had to learn the hard way. 😉
