DR and bit depth are not related
In reply to dgrogers, Apr 14, 2012

Absolutly correct - the bit depth has no effect on the DR... you could build a sensor to have very low DR and still have 12 bit of decernable output... it would pickup very subtle diffrences in tone/shade. (maybe usefull for analizing atmousphere tone/shade very accuratly to deturming composition).

Like wize you could make a camera for looking at the sun with an incredible DR and just an 8bit output or 4bit... it would be able to capture and resolve the dark and light bits and eveything inbetween but will just have very poor tone and shade distinction (posterized look to output).

DR and bit depth are not related....
