Re: Question about DR for various sensor sizes

Could you briefly explain why dynamic range for smaller sensors

look @ SNR beyond deep shadows, Anders likes to shoot black cats in lightless rooms - but in a real life 99% of your details are above that.

PS: and when it comes to DR, he dislikes to illustrate bigger sensor with Sony APS-C 16mp @ base ISO... always using some poor Canons to beat.
