Re: Speaking of high dynamic range....

I remember old audio PCM(pulse code modulation) AD converters. They were not linear like common ADC are but logarithmic, that is, they had more resolution around zero. They had to be used because there were only 8 bits. It was many years ago. I wonder why don't cameras use something similar.

Ah, this thread is old. This should be forgotten.
