This is HUGE in the world of Long Exposure Photography as it means that you can now always get a properly exposed image.
The camera is not like the human eye; it records without fail every detail captured in it's frame of vision. The human eye/mind is not like that. When we are in front of a scene, there are things that register in our mind and things that don’t. We see something that intrigues us, be it beauty, geometry or a statement we want to make. Our mind sees our intent and discards all the irrelevant details ‘cluttering’ the scene.
