Re: DR measuring quite

They say the D3x has 13,7stops of DR, however in the full DR chart
that is not reflected, in the opposite, the D3x starts at 12,9 or so
and drops to 10 stops at ISO800:

http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/eng/Image-Quality-Database/Compare-cameras/ (appareil1) 287|0 (appareil2) 258|0 (onglet) 0 (brand) Nikon (brand2) Fujifilm. At no point the Nikon touches the 13 stop mark.

If you click on the DR tab, the curves show up.

No idea how they come to claim 13,7stops for it.

The 13.7 stops score is from "print" not screen (click the toggle buttons on the DR chart). Although it does seem strange that they would measure a greater dynamic range on print than on-screen.
