In fact, we only carried out the correction of the brightness of the dark part of the picture in the later stage. It can be seen that the latitude performance of the Nikon Z5 camera has completely inherited Nikon’s consistent advantages. After the correction, not only the details are perfectly restored, but the picture is completely free of color irritability or discoloration. This kind of performance can help Nikon Z5 users to take pictures in bright light ratio with more confidence, and to perform post-operations with more confidence.
