Greater Latitude with Exposure Compensation

The exposure compensation slider can be pushed to ± 4 (EV)

With modern sensors and their low noise, a compensation of >4 could make DPL more welcoming to underexposed captures. Editing the .dop sidecar and setting “ExposureBias” to e.g. 5 instead of 4 will make DPL compensate according to what’s in the .dop, even though the slider still reads 4 instead of 5. This means that DPL has the capability for wider adjustments, but it blocks us from using it.


  • Make DPL’s Exposure Compensation tool accept corrections greater than ±4 EV

And with some iso invariant sensors it gives sometime a safer solution (in tricky lighting conditions) to not use camera gain but adjust this in post processing.
