That's a bit too glib.

I mentioned autofocus, but it wasn't really part of my argument.

I was addressing autoexposure, which works regardless of whether the lens aperture is calibrated correctly. With a digital camera you can have it do auto bracketing, and if you shoot RAW, you generally have enough latitude to make a good image, except in the most contrasty situations.

And if you are in that situation, HDR is the way to go.

Of course moving subjects and fleeting opportunities can make a hash of this, in which case you're stuck with autoexposure.

I'm not sure what you think there is an argument about.

Let's look at what I responded to:


Can someone explain what that f.. stuff means?

Care to tell me how "Pay no attention to that, autoexposure will take care of it" counts as an explanation, or even a contribution to an explanation?
