Saturation compensating camera manufacturer

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by Malcolm L. Franklin, Jul 21, 2004.

  1. I saw a review of digital cameras several months ago, that included a
    camera that could compensate for outrageous intensity variations in
    an image.

    The example shot was taken from indoors, looking out of an open door to
    a brightly lit courtyard. Detail was great in both the dim interior,
    and the bright courtyard.

    I am looking for a camera to record my children's life. Total
    budget is about USD$500.00. I often run into this lighting scenario
    with my camcorder, and expect the same with a still camera.

    Recollections of which manufacturer has this technology would be
    sincerely appreciated.

    Best regards,

  3. That is an impressive little camera...and a decent price too...but will it
    address the problem presented? I don't see how it could. Digital cameras
    don't have a wide dynamic range as you discovered with your camcorder. If
    you want to see the lengths that companies are going to address this check
    out the Fuji S3 at www.dpreview.com ....its not out yet and will be far more
    than you want to spend...but an interesting read. Some ways to handle this
    problem is to shoot twice...once for the highlights and once for the
    shadows...and put them together in Photoshop.....use fill flash....or just
    don't take those shots. I use all three methods while I save up for the S3

    Sounds like one of the newer Fuji consumer products. Maybe the S5000 or S7000.
    The tests I've seen are that Fuji sensor design doesn't do any miracles, but it
    may help under some circumstances.
