How do you know this (that Sony is doing it that way and that they're the first)?
This is how I know:
They are the first because any other competitorof a small sensorcamera (H9)would advertise such processing if they could offer it. Sony is first.
My files require far less PP than those of my R1, F828, Canon D60, Film Scans.
A camera is a tool, as you well know.
The H9 is equiped to make certain photographic descions. You either like it or you don't.
I like if after my extensive Real Life User's Review of the H9.
Glad to see you join the discussion.
