D800 dynamic range: a test in Arosa (CH)

Click on each picture to watch a bigger size version (around 2-3 Mb in size)

It was never as easy shooting awesome panoramic pictures. The D800 horizontal/vertical tilt sensors let you shoot series of pictures perfectly aligned. Just set on Aperture priority, focus once, remove autofocus, shoot partially overlapping pictures. Assemble and crop them with Hugin or similar free software. No additional changes required.

I am impressed by the fantastic dynamic range of D800 pictures, even in high contrast / misty situations.

    Thank you: it would be interesting comparing the D800 and the 5D Mark III – but I know nobody here the with the Canon.

    you didn’t do any touch for the foreground grass in the 3rd pic?

      Good eye! This is the D-lighting camera option: you can set it up to four different steps to reduce lights / shadows in high contrasts situation like this one, where the grass was otherwise darker. It seems I need to set it up better 😉
