    Unless you go and look a bit at what happens in the vignette, this shot is by far not the most challenging DR wise I have from the Dragon. I do not hit the top or the bottom.

    It is a DR challenging shot in some ways, but that is more as what fidelity is kept in the skintones and shadows, despite keeping the top of the exposure well within range without really trying to push it in any way.

    I mean, usually I do not shoot to kill a cam.... ;)

    And even though it is good to know that you can do that, too, it is kinda cool to look at what is "effortless".

    and on the Dragon, this shot is... effortless. I know a few other cams for which this would have been "a stretch".

    Even when you look at the vignette, you see that there is "more" before it hits the hard edge of the lens.

    Dragon is simply "more".

    The tonality range looks nice and smooth on that image to my eye. Really like what's going on with those specular highlights on the water too. Nice.

    That said, the concrete reflects of course and gives some polite fill.

    I just love the shot of the woman on the pier, reminded me of the movie "Summer with Monika" shot by Gunnar Fischer. I really enjoyed reading this thread.

    After messing a bit around ind post:

    This is not an "upgrade" of the Epic.

    this is a whole new cam in a familiar case.

    Finishing in 4k from 6k now, is a bit like it was finishing in 1080 from 4k some years ago.

    You mostly have to scale your thinking. Especially as I (at least) cannot go RAW online ATM.

    But the RAW files play incredibly well on minuscule hardware and are incredibly fun to work with.

    Sweet...

    Thursday I will hopefully have a chance to watch a bit of 4k screenings from what I have been working on...

    Sweet...
