Using Active D-Lighting for Nikon DSLRs, seems ' increase ' the dynamic range abit.

D lighting is just a processing from the RAW file. There is still no extra increase in DR info in the initial data captured per se

Fuji S5pro is the more affordable better option. The RED DSMC is suppose to have a great dynamic range dunno how they compare.

ya lah. without a doubt is the s3pro and s5pro. If you want cheap and very good DR, grab a 2nd hand s3pro.

The s3pro beats like all other cameras which cost like many times more expensive.
Too bad only 6megapixel, not enough for any serious use.

really... how did u arrive at this conclusion?
ok lah, his definition of serious is different from yours.

Some people do need to print BIG. the drawback (in terms of image quality) of the s3pro/s5pro is really their resolution. Fujifilm decides to sacrifice precious sensor space for those pixels to capture highlights. U gain some, u lose some.

But I have printed out A3+ size prints from my s3pro and they look quite sharp/detailed even when I view it from like 5 cm away.

The cameras with the max dynamic range are: A900, D90, S5Pro, S3Pro, D3 and D300.

DPReview lists the A900 as having the highest DR though, at 12.6 stops.
