Example of image with blown highlights. I also took a few shots in RAW mode and they came out better, because I was able to compress the dynamic range (during RAW conversion reduce the contrast and the exposure, push up the black point and increase brightness (gamma) and saturation). Not too impressed with the metering and image processing of the 8080 here.

I couldn't agree more with the 8080's selectins for exposure. I now try to shoot everything raw and easily get far better results with UFRaw.

Otherwise a very nice shot, as always Alfred.
