I only shoot in RAW, which may make a difference - the camera doesn't try as hard (At all?) to compensate, except that ISO is on "A", so it does try to balance (on "P") Aperture Speed and ISO.
If I take a photograph of a White sheet of paper (With or without Garlic), the histogram finishes up on the right. I give Negative compensation and clipping is eliminated.
In Photoshop, I sort out White Balance and because it isn't clipped I get a good picture.
I am clearly missing something?
