Oh, I always assumed the combined was what we talked about. Sorry

Good point. I think I usually use highlights to see whether or not
it's clipping, not particularly in detail what parts. The smaller
image clearly shows how much of the sky that is clipping, but sure,
more detail is better. DSLR's need ten inch screens soon so we can
cram all the info we want into the display

For what its worth, I appreciated your contribution to this particular
thread. Your post made me look deeper and find out that I can indeed
see highlighting and histograms at the same time. So, very helpful

Note he's also asking for flashing cold; I haven't seen my Nikon cameras
(or any others) do that.

My D700 does; even in the mode where it does a small preview and four
histograms at once (R, G, B, and l).

But I think there was maybe a menu setting needed.
