5DmkII Dynamic range, how many F-stops
May 13, 2010

Just as a matter of interest I was wondering what the dynamic range of the 5DmkII is?.

I read the human eye has a range of ~ 6 f-stops

As soon as the eye moves it re-adjusts its exposure both chemically and geometrically by adjusting the iris which regulates the size of the pupil.
Hence the full dynamic is about 20 f-stops (in a 6 f-stop window)

Just spent a little time on google trying to find the range of the 5DmkII.

I tend to get WYSIWYG results when using the mkII so I would suspect it to be around 6 f-stops.
Thanks for any info.

Dave
