Re: Another example

In case it wasn't clear (I didn't word that post very well), the point is that if you crammed 32 million of the CP8400 pixels onto a 4/3" sensor camera, you could process the image so that you end up with both resolution and dynamic range that is superior to what you get with the E-300 camera. The downrezzing is to software "bin" the pixels to get an image resolution that is approximately the same resolution as you get with an 8Mp 4/3" sensor. In fact, the resolution is a bit greater and shows less aliasing. So overall, this shows that a 32Mp 4/3" sensor can compete quite well with an 8Mp 4/3" sensor in the area of usable DR.
