Re: An Optimistic Article about Olympus

I’ve long theorised that the highlight headroom I see in Olympus raws is because they’re pulling and pushing at each ISO. So, for example, when I take a shot at ISO 200, what the camera is delivering is ISO 100 pulled one stop then pushed. This would explain why my Sony, with more total dynamic range, has very little highlight headroom. With the Sony, the exposure comp dial spends a lot of time at -1 (and OOC JPEGs are rarely used).
