The above image is an example of exceptional performance of Nikon D800E sensor (manufactured by Sony).

Dynamic Range of Camera sensors are extremely important for Photographers like me where I can completely concentrate on capturing the moments I want in the field than bothering about the camera settings for each shot.

I want to make this post self explanatory with Images than text, please judge yourself.

Below are with Nikon D90 – 7 year old sensor technology

This below example is an accidental shot, still a keeper 🙂 🙂
Example 1:
