  1. I've been shooting away fat dumb and happy all these years letting the in camera metering on my DSLRs read and translate the exposure, either using auto functions or manual just like I did for years with film. Recently, I've read about ETTR (Expose To The Right) for digital and find the advice makes sense logically. I've run into some conflicting advice here and from other sources, and since this is a little outside my wheelhouse I thought I'd ask for a little M9-specific advice on the subject. As some of you may know toward the end of 2012 I returned to Leica with the M8 and now have both M8 and M9P bodies. As I'm continuing to get more and more familiar with the nuances of the M9P particularly. In my quest to use the M9 more effectively, I've read exhaustively about ETTR in digital and the recommendation in that camp seems generally to be to dial in about +2/3 exposure compensation as a starting point and then use manual for more if necessary. Then, in going through many of the reviews and suggestions specifically with the M9, I find that many users set their exposure compensation at -1/3 stop as their normal starting point for deep color saturation. So... hence my confusion. I've experimented a little with both and see some value in pulling the histogram to the left in test images I've done ETTR. So, my question is specifically about the M9 sensor and the way it responds. Is ETTR a better way to shoot with the M9, or does it not really make much difference, or should I be underexposing by that 1/3 stop? When folks talk about that 1/3 stop underexposure to deepen the colors, are they doing that for .jpgs rather than raw? I'm sure I'll be getting some conflicting opinions here, but that's ok... I'm really curious to find out how others of you handle this specifically with the M9/M9P and what has been successful for you. Thanks!
