Re: Film versus DSLR dynamic range

The estimates I have seen give are as follows:

Slide film ~ 5 stops.
DSLR ~ 8 stops (Fuji S5 ~ 10 stops)
Print film ~ 11 stops.

I can see that from my own experience that my D200 has much greater
DR than Fuji Provia 100F and KR64. Assuming I shoot RAW of course.

This mirrors my experience for the past 15 years.

The S5 PRO is very impressive and the fist DSLR I have seen that comes very close to
negative film. Give it another 5 years or and we'll be there.
