Re: E-M1 not vs, but also D750.

I found a similar thing this summer when comparing images of the same subject with a relative using a 5DIII. Areas that were dark in my images were full of detail in his and I had blown highlights!

I now routinely shoot with minus half a stop of compensation. It doesn't help the shadows but at least the subject isn't blown out.
I shoot the same way generally and have done since I shot slide film (but a third of a stop under).
