Blinkies vs. Histograms?
On my camera (Nikon d90), when I am previewing an image I click up and highlights that have lost information will blink.
I find "blinkies" most useful in camera raw or Lightroom where you can toggle them on and off via the histogram. They are most useful when used in conjunction with the histogram as opposed to being some "wonderful" replacement for the histogram.
I simply can't stand people who don't know how to/refuse to read the histogram. It is very important tool and actually stores a lot of important and useful information so it is well worth spending some time learning how to read it if you can't. Check out Greg's video on the histogram if you like:
1. They are based on low resolution preview images, not RAW files.
2. Usually are triggered around 1 stop under the actual overexposure point, giving false positives.
