Nikon D800 Preview

Nikon has a new flagship DSLR and seems to reset/redefine the new standard that all others will be compared to: the D800. Read the preview on Digital Photography Review. Impressive!

To HDR or not HDR? That's the question.

After the Washington Post published a cover photo that was processed as an HDR photo, a discussion started about if documental photos could be processed using HDR or not. Some say it alter the (digital) photo and ethics say you can't do that. Other say, using HDR properly actually creates the only photo true to the moment it was captured as you saw it then, because our eyes do biological HDR all the time.

Read a good discussion on Digital Photography Review about the subject. I tend to agree with what DPReview says: if used properly, HDR is closer to the real, natural scene as you saw it than a traditional digital photo. A CCD is not as good as your eye, ever. (Well not for a long time at least.)
