    Canon 40D point of clipping

    Panoholic Level 2
      Unfortunately I did not make following tests early enough to report the findings before ACR 4.3 has been closed, but I hoped that Adobe made some better effort in the meantime to accomodate this camera. Anyway, there is always a next version.

      The issue is the White Level setting. I see this explicitely in the DNG files, and the processing of the originating raw files with ACR reinforces the findings:

      the white level/clipping point settings are TOTALLY off.

      The currect setting is 13600, at all ISOs.

      The actual clipping points are, roughly:

      ISO 100: 13824, 125: 16383, 160: 12745

      ISO 200: 16224, 250: 16383, 320: 12743

      ISO 400: 16224, 500: 16383, 640: 12742

      ISO 800: 16223, 1000: 16383, 1250: 12743

      ISO 1600: 16224

      ISO 3200: 16383
