4403HDR and RAW processing
- Dec 1, 2006Hello,
In Panotools Florian Bertzbach recommends the following steps for a
simple and effective approach to RAW extraction:
In the same site Eric Krause tells us about dynamic extraction fro
This information is extremely useful to me but I seem to be missing a
very simple detail which is giving me headache in my experiments, and
it's regarding RAW bracketed images:
For instance in the last link I read:
"...To determine this point draw up and down the exposure slider.
The problem I see in my experiments is as follows:
1] I shoot in bracketing and RAW format
2] When I go and treat RAW files I face a serious problem with
In fact the exposure should be fixed to say for instance 0,-2, +2.
If I do not do that then later on when I go and merge the 3 pics
together the results will be very poor as the dynamic range is not
If I do not blend 3 pics and I use only one then the high dynamic
range I can achieve is good (one way or the other, especially thanks
for the great tips in panotools).
But some time (especially as far as I can see indoor pics, you really
need to use bracketing)
So to cut the long story short, if you have 3 pics (0,-2,+2) my guess
is that the exposure value should be kept strictly 0,-2,+2 and I
should not be playing with the exposure slider.
Am I correct?
Thanks in advance to you all.
