Re: Bit depth and dynamic range...

It is certainly
possible to compress the tonal values of the scene that has dynamic
range more than 11 stops into this range and still have some
measurable detail in both shadows and highlights.

lens flare limits DR to 10 stops with best zooms stopped down to
"sweet spot". with primes the limit is about 11 stops.

So Julia, do you thing the non-linearity at the bottom tones in this graph is likely to be the result of lens flare?
