In-Camera Highlight Warning: A Practical Setting
All digital cameras are equipped with many advanced hidden features. Previously, I discussed the metering system. In this article, I am going to cover the In-Camera Highlight Warning.
What is In-Camera Highlight Warning?
As you already know, all digital cameras have a common weakness; they cannot maintain the highlights. Therefore, the camera manufacturers add a hidden feature to help photographers find the missing highlights. Generally speaking, we should call it “In-Camera Highlight Warning.” However, different manufacturers use different names for this function, and it works all the same across all makes.
The Highlight Warning warns photographers that blinking areas in the pictures are overexposed. Therefore, photographers should know that they cannot retrieve any details from affected areas.
So, activate the Highlight Warning in your camera and the next time you’re out in the field shooting, you can check which parts of an image are over-exposed and make the fixes.
