Re: Dynamic range and RAW file "bit depth"

The digitization is not determining the dynamic range, the well filling (number of electrons one can store) and the function between the number of electrons and the number of photons hitting the photo site determines that. So I think he/she was going in the right direction, but the assumption that photon/electron filling is linear is not correct.
