Re: Dynamic Range

What about DR and small pixels? Can current DSLR DR be achieved with
digicam sensor density?

I think it should be possible. If you have four 4x smaller pixels each of them will saturate 4x faster but also 4x less light will be hitting each.

But - on the other side - bigger pixels probably have less electronics on them (smaller percent of space is taken up by electronics on big pixels than on small).
