Re: DxO Print/Landscape DR vs Photographic Dynamic Range

So IMHO they both have their place: DxO tells you clearly which is the better sensor, which deepest shadows you can push more; PDR tells you how much of a difference it may make in (its view of) typical practice.

Great overview (which I snipped out).

Semantics perhaps ...
I disagree that DxO "tell you clearly which is the better sensor".
Perhaps I'd agree that it tells you which has the better pixel architecture.

I mean we have to say "better sensor" for what purpose.
If it's to take photographs I think DxO is less relevant than PDR.
