On the dynamic range of RAW...

What about using contrast adjustment in the camera?

If the contrast is minimized in the picture settings of the camera (-5 in C8080), wouldn't that increase the dynamic range in a similar way?

I tried this and looked at the histograms for two pictures shot at +5 and -5 contrast. The histogram of the -5 picture was compressed approximately 20% and information seemed to be added at the upper and lower ends.

The same dramatic effect can probably not be achieved, but at least it seemed that the dynamic range was increased.
