Blinky....with edit

Blinkies are overexposed highlights.

The blinkies start to show about 5% before the highlights are actually overexposed. It differs from model to model on how soon they start to show, and some rendering settings can affect the point. You can actually have a large area of blinkies.....and no actual highlight overexposure. That does not mean where there are blinkies...there is no overexposure

With lack of standardized testing, 14 stops is a stretch. (Visit http://www.photonstophotos.net/Charts/PDR.htm for an estimation of real world performance.)

I was speaking to Dynamic Range. PDR  ( DxO's Engineering  Dynamic Range) is not Dynamic Range and may or may not represent "Real World" results in all scenarios, IMO. A great tool though for comparing. Bill does great work

He does are great job, IMO, explaining it here:

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
