SD1M Dynamic Range Test Results for jpegs out of camera.

Here is the graph and the data from the images I shot with the SD1M. The program allows for multiple profiles, flash etc, different ISOs etc. Here I used the quick method for profiling the meter to the camera's sensor.

NOTE: I shot with in camera jpegs not raw so the dynamic range will be a little less. However this gives you a good idea of the camera's dynamic range in a simple fast and easy test.

If you are interested in the method that I followed---here it is on youtube at this link:

I followed the same exact instructions and method. Easy to do.
