Erik,

thanks for sharing!

I wonder if it would be possible to design an image sensor that can stop the exposure when a certain number of photosite reaches 100% capture capacity. Basically that would be a sensor with protection against clipping.

Yes. I call those photon-counting sensors. Eric Fossum and others are working on them, but they’re a long way from commercial consumer camera use.
