Only for people that take snippets of my posts out of their context.

Sorry, Jack, meta-argumentation is weak sauce. Address the errors in my arguments or admit that you were wrong, which you were. I understand why you'd resort to meta-arguments here.

Tip: I'm a nice guy, and as soon as you come around to seeing the error of your ways, I bet we'll get along real fine. Don't let your ego get in the way! It's not worth it...

I've known this stuff as summarized in these two posts for years and certainly did not change my mind in the last couple of days for these two threads.

Argumentum ad verecundiam - you obviously know a lot, but everyone makes mistakes. Your appeal to your own authority is fallacious. Admit your mistakes and let's move forward.

PS This phantomatic 'proof' you keep referring to was just a fictitious example connected to issue 1 (inconsistent in-camera ISOs between cameras and manufacturers), labelled as such for correctness and nothing to do with exposure, of what may happen when in-camera ISO labels are arbitrarily assigned by a a manufacturer - foolish people take them at face value at their own peril when deciding where to lay their money.

Ah, no. It was much more than that. It was the very illustration of the thinking errors you made in coming to the incorrect conclusions to which you came.
