Note: The term is "Luminance" (where the particular metric used in digital cameras is likely what is called "Luma"). "Luminescence" describes an object that actually emits it's own light energy.

Thanks for correcting me there. I never liked the word luminescence to begin with

Thanks for the links (though I haven't been able to make head or tail out of it so far!).
