Re: In-camera processing of long-exposure RAW data

Whilst I am more than happy to accept the conclusions of the people with the knowledge specific to this form of analysis . The reality of the situation seems that it is only of relevance to those taking some form of photography where truly accurate image data was critical , perhaps astrophotography for scientific analysis as opposed to about 99.99% of photography that has aesthetics or capturing the moment as its objectives. And frankly unless you are in this probably microscopic niche of photographers who this would effect , the relevance to the vast majority of photographers is insignificant.

By directly comparing raw { using the admittedly low tech visual test} files across the makers it is very clear that with cameras such as the D3X Nikon manages to achieve excellent levels of detail. I would be interested in real life examples {beyond those more interested in scientific data than photography } where this would have any significant impact.
