    Just foolin' around. Background T32, face in covered, heavily shaded doorway T1.7 (ISO 400).

    1st one is not worked much... nothing clipped and nothing crushed pure black. This test is the "hard way"... putting the subject as the darkest object in a high range scene. We are not debating whether or not the details or noise in the shadows of the trees are good enough or not.

    2nd one is worked with highlight recovery only to show that the info is really there. Not as a grading option.

    Metered with Sekonic Cine.

    This is Build 16. Build 15 will do this as well, just won't look quite as good... :-)

    This is more about grading technique and not throwing away info.

    I can see that there is information there in the second image, but I have to say that it looks terrible. It's not an acceptable image. I'm not trying to jump on you, but it doesn't seem like a very good grade. Is this how the new noise looks?

    Maybe I should delete that 2nd one? It is not a useable grade. It is just hyper-extended to show the info is there. Or were you kidding?

    The noise looks much better. Far less patterning, I'll need to hold out to see it in motion though.

    I'm not kidding. I would take the second one off. Do you have a different grade, something in the middle? I think that the second one just makes the camera look noisy.
