maxotics Posted January 10, 2018 Share Posted January 10, 2018 In my ongoing self-appointed role as "LOG gamma" police, I've created a video that shows how RAW is processed into images we use, both for photography and video. It drives me nuts that people talk about 14+ stops of DR, as if noise, or sensor pixel sensitivity, stays constant from lower to higher values. After 5 stops, IMHO, noise makes any extra DR recorded by the sensor quite undesirable. Further, even in 5 stops of DR there is a huge difference between how well cameras record DR even in fairly well exposed image. That is to say, the GH5S isn't better only because it can record in low light. It can be better because even at ISO 800 it will get a richer image in the shadows. However, it is still 8-bit. It still throws out gobs of sensor data. Well, enough of that.
