Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Dynamic range and medium format, part of Advanced Photography: Medium-Format Digital Cameras.
- At the beginning of this chapter you saw me shoot…a photo of Josh with this Fuji GFX.…What I was after was something that we could use…to test the dynamic range capability of this camera.…Maybe test is too strong a word,…just to experience the dynamic range…capabilities of this camera.…Right after we finished that,…right after we stopped rolling on that movie,…some clouds came in and so I shot again,…exact same framing, just because then we got much nicer…detail in the sky.…
Here you can see what I ended up with.…I dramatically underexposed this shot…to bring in a whole bunch of the sky.…And in the process ended up with this,…just nothing in the foreground.…So I'm here in Camera Raw,…I have pulled this image straight out of the camera.…I have not done anything to it, it is a raw file.…Now you may be wondering, well if it's a raw file,…how come it's cropped that odd way,…because you can't crop a raw file in camera.…And that's true, but as I mentioned in that movie,…the Fuji allows me to shoot with raw plus jpeg,…
