Sony A9 and it’s Dynamic Range

I am a subscriber to  Jared Polin  on YouTube.  He was giving a review about the Sony A9. He challenged his followers to download his raw file to see how impressive it was and to make tweaks to it as needed.

The picture below captures a scene with a sports broadcaster commenting on a soccer game in a booth overlooking the stadium.  The camera was able to capture both detail in the highlights (in the stadium) and the shadows (inside the booth) despite there being such a large difference in the exposure between them.

This is Jared’s original file with no adjustments.

Here is my edit to Jared’s file (slight teak)

I use Nikon equipment but Sony have been making great advancements in camera technology. I will have to watch this closely.
