David, that in no way characterizes cameras. What you presented is
dynamic range of your preferred processing of the images.

Hi Julia,

I should have said "D200 system". (camera + NC4.4)

I know what you are saying, but my rough and ready test does indeed characterise the D200 with Normal Curve as processed by Nikon Capture.

It does not isolate what the sensor is capable of, nor what magic tricks can be done in (other) RAW converters. But it does quantify what the manufacturer deems is the optimum for their product. That is an excellent starting point for knowing your camera.

As my photography lecturer always used to say - learn the rules so you can break them.

I agree that this is a very thin slice of data, but it is the most relevant one.
