Re: 8 Bit or 16 bit , sRGB or Pro Photo

I have to say that the only time I feel I have almost found the subtle changes in gradient is when it is a long monochromatic range.

As I said before, all I can say is that there is not as much contrast. I feel this is because the 8 bit (256)  shade ramp leaves fudged steps of contrast , where the 16 bit would provide a more even tone grading.   Again the changes could almost be analogous to the debate between the semi medium format digital and the modern full frame sensor rendering.    In my "black beach" cliffs print there is a feel that the deep areas of near black, almost open slightly where the greater tonal range allows.

Gear ... what I need to get the job done , after all you don't see mechanics listing their brand of spanner as a qualification .
