Cheap/High end digital cameras and skin density

Many of us shooting weddings will spend countless hours adjusting exposure on a computer because high end DSLRs are set up to come out underexposed most of the time to protect the highlights. The sad thing is cheap digital cameras are set up to expose skin at 230!

When a wedding photographer gets to busy to mask off highlights/adjust skin density, they will hand the files over to a lab. The lab simply cranks up the levels slider without a mask, toasting the highlights just like the cheap cameras do in camera. Hopefully the D3x will focus on dynamic range rather than poster sized enlargement capability clients typically donít order anyway.
