I have a problem with camera raw 6.7.

When:
The problem happens when a series of bracketed images made by a nikon D800 is opened in Camera Raw 6.7.

What:
Camera Raw 'Basic' controls do not respond normally - especially the exposure tab.

With what kind of pictures:
The ones that are severely under exposed by two or more stops and have little or no bright or highlight parts in the image.

If there is some form of brightness in the image, camera raw responds normally.

Please help me with this problem as I come across this problem multiple times a day

I was just making a series of test shots and I cannot reproduce the problem!

What I was seeing might be the difference that is due to the camera's liveview vs the normal release option.
Goodness, i feel very much ashamed for opening this topic. I'm sorry!

The problem described seemed to be that a very dark exposure cannot be made bright in ACR 6.7.

Now I am confused about the explanation that it is a difference between LiveView and normal-release. What does that have to do with ACR or the overall darkness or lightness of the exposure?

I could have added that even though I thought I used the same exposure, that was not the case. Very dumb of me..
The camera exposes differently when I switch between LV and normal mode,
even though matrix metering is active. That's where the confusion came from,
again: sorry.

So you mean the camera took some very, very dark pictures, that you expected to be brighter and thought ACR had done something, but in reality it was the camera starting its bracket too dark due to metering differences between LV and viewfinder light paths.
