Hi there My understanding of blinkies are that they are bad - there is no data for that part of the image so it will just show as plain white? Is the aim to totally remove them or minimise them as best as possible? Today I was out walking the dog with the camera in tow and was playing with settings. The sun was to the left 90* to the lens and side on to the reeds in the photo. I used ISO 100 on aperture priority and took a series of photos changing the aperture several stops at a time. on each image there were blinkies flashing on the reed stems where the sun was hitting them. The top photo is an average image using f7 and the bottom one where i also used the exposure comp. button to -1. (have shown the JPEG but also have the RAW file) They both had blinkies but the darker image had less. I would prefer to take get the best image I could with out processing so what should I have done? Or is it just accept sometimes they cant be helped? On this occasion it was minor but im finding that often sky or water will have a chunk of blinkies.
