Gabor's channel independence post below shows no stretching

If one channel of the D3X had a different analog or digital (stretching) gain than the other channels then it would represent a different electron count and thus would have a different shot noise standard deviation. To within the square of the precision Gabor shows the standard deviations are equal then the gains must also be equal.
