NX 5 Zebra settings

Hi,

I have just got an NX5. The factory setting is set at 70. What's a good setting for this camera. I set my FX1 at +100 and it's been fine. Any recommendations would be great! Thanks!

Zebra of 70 is best for setting exposure on faces. Otherwise 100 should be good.

Zebras are just a guide, nothing more. If you've grown up with zebras at 100% (as I did too, on my TRV900) then I'd suggest you stick with that setting. The good thing about the 100% setting is that you know you're just on the limit, and that a third of a stop wider and all detail will be lost in that area.

I too came from an FX1 and have my NX5U zebra set at 100. I know that on white its OK, on faces or yellow it will be overexposed. I find the NX5U is set closer to being real than the FX1 that was way underexposing most of the time.
