Some high contrast scenes are to high to capture all w/o going to HDR. What I noticed is how very Flat (I think as you said) the RAW images are at Strong and 400 vs off and adjusting for highlights manually or EC using Provia Std. It’s like during the capture of 3 exposures (if set to 3 frames) each frame has chance to have different scene since the camera takes 3 different shots and it’s like you press the shutter button 3 times. Thanks Russell, cheers. Subscribe to learn even more about your Fujifilm via email. All I meant by saying “the RAW file isn’t affected” is that there’s no special processing applied. SETTING”, then “BKT SELECT”, choose “DYNAMIC RANGE BKT”. Hi John and thanks for the usefull information. Unfortunately, you cannot bump the dynamic range up, only down. The dr200% raw file is digitally pushed by 2 stop in most raw software. That’s right, when you increase the ISO to get a higher DR setting, then the shutter speed (when in Aperture Priority) will increase by the same amount of stops. It’s unfortunate that their names are so similar because that adds confusion. In Base Characteristics, if you have the Curve in Auto, you will see your Dynamic Range settings applied to the photo. Now, by increasing the ISO from 200 to 800 the „original“ exposure (for the shadows) would no longer be 1/125 but 1/500. These adjustments are burned into the JPEG file. The settings are written to the RAW metadata and some RAW converters may apply these settings to the file on import, based on your RAW converter settings. Highlight & Shadow Tone is another setting that does another thing. Dynamic Range Priority might be a good solution for everyone. Fujifilm launches mirrorless digital camera “FUJIFILM X-S10” ... ,” “Clarity” and “Dynamic Range Priority” to produce landscape images of greater saturation or beautiful portraiture that accentuates the main subject. It’s an immediate solution to dealing with a high-contrast scene, and it does work well in many situations. That’s what I always thought…the RAW file being the RAW file. But the thing is, the whole point of the DR200% mode is to preserve highlights that have been blowed in my first picture at DR100%. So, using “DRO” I can completely concentrate on subject matter and timing, knowing I’m Safe. But I got DR 200 to work! As long as you have an ISO of 800 or higher set, the camera will make three exposures at all D-Rng levels. So if you’re only capturing RAW, using a high DR setting can help give you an idea of how much you’ll be able to recover in post-processing. You could always stop down to compensate, if possible. You’ll see it in your in-camera preview, and also in your RAW converter during import. Beware how you have your Import settings in these programs. The highlights will probably be stacked up to the right. “200% is available at sensitivities of from ISO 320 to ISO 12800, X400% at sensitivities of from ISO 640 to 12800.” The ISO value is written to RAW. . I was wondering if you have an opinion on trying to optimise your dynamic range in-camera versus using features such as auto adjustments, magic wand, AI tool, etc, that various processing programs now offer. read how the Dynamic Range setting works here, Fujifilm Tethering Workarounds for Lightroom Classic and Capture One, Kneecapped by the Mythical Fear of High ISO Noise. I don’t intend to bother you but the subject is actually extremely interesting and I really appreciated your detailed and documented explainations and would love to have your point of view on this : In my understanding, DR modes affect the RAW because the exposure (speed/aperture, ISO excluded) should not be the same at DR100% and DR 200% : lets say I shoot 2 pictures with the following settings : Aperture fixed at f/t2, auto speed, auto ISO : -First picture shot at ISO 200, DR100%: I manage to get a correct exposure (no exposure to the right at all, just an average exposure to get good shadows and not to blown highlights), I am getting a correctly exposed RAW file. Great explanations though. How Accurate are Fujifilm’s Film Simulations? If this is correct then one could say that using the DR funtion does not come totally for free but at the cost of a faster shutter speed, which in some cases could be an unwanted side effect, but again, I‘m not sure if my understanding is correct. Fuji Dynamic Range in Lightroom and Capture One, http://fujifilm-dsc.com/en/manual/x-t30/menu_shooting/image_quality_setting/index.html#dynamic_range, Fujifilm Tethering Workarounds for Lightroom Classic and Capture One, Kneecapped by the Mythical Fear of High ISO Noise. So am I correct to assume that, by switching from DR100% to DR200%, the exposure (only the aperture/speed parameters) of my RAW file will be affected ? Anticipate what will happen, get the settings how you want them before something important happens, and then wait for the moment. D Range Priority. If you want some more evenly toned photos, you could just leave both DR and ISO in Auto. Delivers 9.7 stops of dynamic range at ISO 800 & ISO 1600. If that’s what you’re doing, then yes you’re not getting much out of these settings other than seeing a “flatter” histogram in your viewfinder. The camera processor then “pushes” the exposure back up to where it should have been, but minimizes the push in the highlights area. D RANGE PRIORITY Reduce loss of detail in highlights and shadows for natural-looking results when photographing high-contrast scenes. But there are times when both types of photographers encounter really high-contrast scenes, with really bright brights and really dark darks. See the captions for settings in subsequent images. I assume the simple process would be to set a desired shutter and aperture, leave the ISO in Auto, and use the exposure compensation dial to knock it down. It’s always left me puzzled and I have mostly seen articles where it’s suggested not to use the DR settings. The key feature of the F200EXR is its very large dynamic range (estimated to be 11 stops) when used in its dual-capture mode. The Fuji X100V is a handsome all-metal camera with real knobs and dials which makes it very easy to set and control from shot to shot. They’re settings that alter how a Fujifilm JPEG is processed in-camera. It is weather-resistant, has a backside-illuminated X-Trans CMOS 4 APS-C sensor and an X-Processor 4 quad core processor. The third option is Dynamic Range 400 (DR400), and if it is selected the minimum ISO is 800. No one looking at your photos is going to notice an increase in noise from 160 to 320. And they also show RAW-only photographers how they might be able to recover dynamic range in post-processing. The Dynamic Range setting is not the same as Dynamic Range Priority found in the X-H1 and X-T3/30. Now adjust your exposure until the highlights come off of the right wall. Other brands may have different names. Have a great trip to Africa! In the range of ISO 160 to 800 I think it’s not a big deal because of iso invariance. Fujifilm X100F, f/4.5 at 1/140 at Auto ISO 400, Auto Dynamic Range at 200%. You can kind of change the D-Rng setting using the Q button in playback mode. Any other Base Characteristics Curve ignores it an there’s no way to just apply the DR setting. This website uses cookies. WEAK is available at sensitivities of from ISO 400 to ISO 12800, STRONG at sensitivities of from ISO 800 to 12800. You can’t apply the camera’s D-Rng setting manually. Also, Photo Mechanic uses those JPG previews, so you’ll see those settings there too. The process can be equated to decreasing the Exposure slider and increasing the Shadow slider in Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture One, and many other photo processing programs. But for those who really want to take advantage of this feature, I hope this article helps. Here are the differences between Fuji's Dynamic Range Priority and Dynamic Range - two commonly misunderstood camera settings, with image examples. The underexposure refers to how the in-camera JPG is made. It seems that since the noise ratio is so low you can actually shoot at an “unsuitable” exposure, lowering the ISO beyond where it needs to be for a good exposure, then without ill effects raise it later in processing. And without much noise at all. Fujifilm Camera Remote app to import to Apple iPhone 7 Plus, Snapseed and then BeCasso apps. The differences are subtle, so I’ve included the histograms. Fujifilm X100F, f/5.6 at 1/220 at Auto ISO 200, Auto Dynamic Range at 100%. You’re welcome! If you don’t like flat, low-contrast photos, you may want to avoid Dynamic Range Priority altogether and only use Dynamic Range at times. If you’re in a custom setting where you’ve programmed a Dynamic Range setting and Highlight/Shadow Tone settings, enabling Dynamic Range Priority will disable these. It is the successor to 2016's Fujifilm X-T2. Price: $1,200 #18 Fujifilm X-T30. I just wanted to limit it to the workings of Dynamic Range (found in all X cameras). May I just need to practice a lot more. D-Range Priority The Fuji X-T3 offers a mode called Dynamic Range Priority, which appears to be an automatic combination of Highlight Tone, Shadow Tone and D-Range. Not sure when to use this as never use .jpg. When the Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR is in EXR - D-Range Priority (DR) mode, you can set the Dynamic Range to either 100%, 200%, 400% or 800%, or Auto. Take some photos of the same high-contrast scene with DR100 and DR400, import them, and see how and when they look different. I just called Fuji tech in NJ to ask if DRO has ANY effect on RAW files…the answer is NO. They don’t permanently alter the data captured in the RAW image. When dynamic range is likely the priority, this mode quickly shifts the Fujifilm X-H1 into full dynamic range priority. Post-processing programs will always have more capabilities than what the camera can do, but sometimes what the camera can do is more than adequate for many photographers. Two stops (six clicks) – use DR400%. When Dynamic Range Priority is in Weak, Strong, or Auto, the Dynamic Range and Highlight/Shadow Tone settings are disabled since Dynamic Range Priority controls both of those.

So if you want to get the most out of your RAW photos, I’d recommend exposing as far to the right as you can while protecting the highlights. You can only get your camera’s D-Rng setting applied if you hit “Auto” for the tonal adjustments. But what does D-RANGE PRIORITY do and how is it different from the other Dynamic Range settings like DR100,DR200,DR400? I would suggest comparing some photos with different DR settings, importing them into each program with different profiles & base characteristics to see what the differences are for each. So the raw file is still the same, it just has digital gain applied in software. Think of Dynamic Range Priority as a boosted Dynamic Range setting. But if you’re processing a RAW file, you’re probably better off doing all of this using other tools like Highlight and Shadow. If your habit is to always shoot at a low ISO with a histogram bunched up on the left, planning to push it in post-processing, you’re not giving LR/PS much data to work with. Hello Viktor, I’m sorry but I’ve been too busy to run some experiments for you to illustrate this. If you go into the main menu and select “BKT/Adv. Provia has a curve with a lower contrast. My answer now is “both,” and it all depends on the RAW converter you use. I find the stronger settings do result in a flatter image than I like, it would be nice to limit the auto setting so that it cannot use the stronger settings. Start with DR100%, which turns the dynamic range optimizations off. Thanks. In the second case, you are seeing not only the “standard” converter image but also that image with the Dynamic Range/Priority settings/”adjustments” on top? Thanks for the info and comments. However, the DR settings are written to the metadata and some RAW converters apply this setting automatically. So For RAW it has no effect…now if they are wrong??? Happy shooting! This is the standard Dynamic Range option and it cannot be turned off (except by selected extended ISO 100). You didn’t mention that in Auto, DRP adds the separate Highlight and Shadow controls to the mix. Just following up a bit more on my question if you get time and have interest in answering it, I was wanting to add to the mix the issue of Fuji’s ISO invariant sensor. It affects your in-camera histogram that you might be using to calculate your RAW exposure, and some RAW converters will read the DR setting written to the RAW file. Sorry for the confusion, the final RAW file written to your memory card – the actual light & color value of the pixels recorded – doesn’t change. Hell, I can’t even see that. It’s important to have a basic, simple understanding of how D-Rng works in order to use it properly. So when Dynamic Range Priority is applied, the images will look different from both simulations. And, it looks like ISO Auto is not the way to go. Please note that these photos use Lightroom to simulate DR400 processing, to illustrate the steps that the camera processor takes. It seems to be something of a tricky subject. Sorry, I see contradiction in this article. You can also bracket the D-Rng settings. Dynamic Range 200 (DR200) is next, and if it is selected the minimum ISO is 400 (instead of ISO 200). the one that is fine for the shadows). When bringing into LR and adjustingand flatness can be fixed. Because the ISO output is lowered, you’ll need a higher ISO when using Fujifilm’s Dynamic Range. It sports a larger, APS-C sized sensor for dynamic range no small-sensor compact or even m4/3 camera can touch. *Edit – this answer appears to be based on the RAW converter. Just to confirm. So no, the RAW file isn’t affected, but how the RAW converter processes the file will vary. So while all Fujifilm X cameras have Dynamic Range, if you want to get a “Dynamic Range Priority” look with other cameras, you’ll have to manually control Highlight & Shadow Tones. Hi! This histogram has some dark shadows but still contains plenty of data. But pure .jpg way too flat. Yeah so if you’re in manual ISO the camera won’t override that ISO to give you a higher DR. The raw file will be underexposed by 1stop when using dr200%. I should be getting an underexposed RAW file right ? Hi Rick, yes that’s right. If you’re using another RAW converter, all I can say is experiment with it. No. Dynamic Range Priority is a completely different setting found only in the X-H1 and X-T3/30. Regular “Dynamic Range” doesn’t touch the Highlight & Shadow settings, only “Dynamic Range Priority” does. The Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR (February 2009) has similar low light capabilities as the F31fd in pixel binning mode, but allows for double the resolution in good light. But the image preview – even if you’re only recording RAW – will still reflect the Dynamic Range/Priority settings. -I then decide to switch to DR200% : my ISO is bumped up to ISO400, and as I understand it, my RAW file will still be shot at ISO200, only the darker parts will be affected during the processing of the RAW file (and pushed to ISO400). . Fujifilm has a Dynamic Range setting, like many other digital cameras, that help preserve details in bright highlight areas. To learn more about what we’re about, please explore Innovation at the Fujifilm global website. if you reply…..so what is the advantage of using DR when capturing in RAW, in M or using EC with A or S priority exposure mode. Bracketing modes won’t work in those situations. The RAW file is the raw data from the sensor. White Balance. First quote from article means, that RAW data is underexposed (affected), and second quote claims that only metadata is affected. Your RAW converter may or may not read the camera settings metadata and apply corrections on import. The X-T3 is capable of recording video in 4K resolution up to 60 fps. Count the clicks – no matter which method you’re using to adjust exposure (shutter, ISO, aperture, or EV dial), each click is 1/3 stop with standard Fujifilm settings. The big takeaway for understanding the difference between Dynamic Range Priority and Dynamic Range is the “package” concept. Dynamic Range 400% is the same thing, but with a two-stop underexposure. Does that sound right and make sense as a simple approach likely to extend dynamic range without unnecessary noise? I actually didn’t bring up Dynamic Range Priority at all in this article. The first step in optimizing D-Rng is knowing which setting you should use. It reduces the exposure in the bright areas and spits out a JPG with preserved highlights – to a point. And some photographers prefer that look to be able to add contrast back to a JPEG file. To learn more about what we’re about, please explore Innovation at the Fujifilm global website. I appreciate it. Only expose to the left when you really need to protect the highlights. The RAW file is the RAW file, as read out by the sensor before processing. People advocate this with Expose To The Left. I am heading to Africa this summer for a Christian mission project as the principal photographer so i might dig deeper into your suggestions.
