While the topic is interesting in general, the question arises why this thread has been opened in the Olympus DSLR forum?

Here's the answer to your question, given very soon after this thread was started:


which predictably answers nothing

Here's a thread on a related matter in the Open Talk Forum:


and only raises the point that you when asked the simple question, how does an IMATEST RAW of 11.5 stops DR get redefined as 10.2 stops in DxO. Ive asked this several times in several ways, and you ran and hid under your flat rock in case you were pressed to answer.

And I also want to know, if a particular measure is so corrupted as to be defeated in a simple jpeg, why it has been held as the standard for sensor measurement. Because the results bear no relationship with the actualities in photography.

The point is you come to 1022 on the basis of

  • "was in 1022, not Open Talk, and there were some who were rather confused about what DR is and how it's measured"

now it seems that you are the one 'confused'
and you clearly have no idea how its measured

  • "well, yeah, it might help if "they" knew what DR is, how it is measured, and how it applies to photography, so that they would be more able to understand what is "bogus" and what is not and show a little restraint with their self-harming posts."

not withstanding your disguise that you can teach someone something when you are actually too clueless to defend yourself, perhaps your absence was to limit the amount of 'self harm' you were about to be appropriated.

  • "And those people, of course, don't "need" an education, but some might find it interesting to understand DR in a little more detail. "

perhaps they would, but wouldnt it be better if someone who knew wtf he was talking about provided the advice?

  • " The shoes fit you rather well. So, how about it -- do you want me to explain DR to you -- what it is, how it's measured, and what it's good for -- or would you rather just parade your ignorance in public? "

like a parading fool you speak to others of their supposed 'ignorance' and yet cant answer one apparently simple question. Wasnt your claim about 'some who were rather confused about what DR is and how it's measured"

you dont have a clue what you are talking about
if you did you could answer my very simple question

for people pretending to be 'educating' others here b/se they claim 1022 is some sort of special case, they should most certainly know what they are talking about, or they should stxx and peddle their poison somewhere where it is better appreciated

now this sham, this fraud, this pretence and lie should end. You serve no purpose on these questions as you cannot answer them and do not even possess the wit to defend yourself against them
