    Thank you Gandolphi!  Yes, that was my question and it remains an interesting one to me.  I've framed it multiple times.  I was wrong about ISO, but not so wrong as a practical photographer ...
  • Replied in I am wrong
    Thanks yes, that makes sense to me now!  It was Mako2011 was saying too but I didn't give it enough thought.
  • Thanks for the kind words.  It's not the first time I've been humiliated or wrong.  No fun cry-sob. But I still wonder, why only now has Leica put an ISO dial on the camera?  Even though I could ...
  • Replied in I am wrong
    Okay, just looked at some files from my DF. They do change drastically based on ISO. Here's a file I took with the DF at ISO 100 Here's another files where I set the ISO to 3200. Although it is ...

    You stated that it wasn't about ISO.  Now the subject is blurriness?  If you're not going to do your homework (watch the video) then don't argue what it is about.  Stay on topic. You're consistent ...

    Seriously, what is your problem?  Watch whole video and then make an argument about why it doesn't cover the issues behind ISO.  The video takes someone through the laborious process of taking RAW ...

    Iliah, what's with the insults?  If you have data that proves that ISO has a material effect on M10-D RAW files than share it.  What is "your kind of data"? Otherwise, you're just a bitter person ...

    I did a video on YouTube where I try to take someone through how a camera works very slowly. Search maxotics and "How RAW Works - Part 2: Dynamic Rage"  I meant to title it "Dynamic Range" but ...

    Yeah, I shouldn't have said anything but others were claiming their expertise and I took the bait.  I don't care how long anyone has done anything.  I learn from everyone.  I'm 6'2".  Us tall ...

    Definition: a coefficient is a multiplicative factor in some term of a polynomial , a series , or any expression In other words, even if we reduce the ratio of electrons/signal we have a growth ...

    That's theoretically possible and is the similar to Sony's BSI technology. However, I have not seen any evidence that the ISO dial increases voltage from the sensor .  The photons create the ...
  • On the M9, for example, there is the shutter dial and small click/dial around the shutter release for mode.  I don't understand the "adjusting shutter speed in RAW".  There has always been a ...

    Great, then if you've been doing this as long as I have and have done scientific study, as a practical photographer, do you change ISO when shooting RAW and expect improved quality based on that ...

    John, as I've written, I've been doing this for 45 years, from film to digital.  I've worked with RAW data as a programmer.  I can see no difference in my data or analysis.  how much scientific ...
  • Sorry, isn't there a HUGE difference between a reminder dial on the back and a CONTROL KNOB on the top of the camera?  The intent of the one you talk about was to remind you; the intent and ...
  • Replied in Already
    I can see no difference in the tonality structure of the data.  That is, one file might have two green pixels at 100 and 200, and the other at 120 and 220, but they both render the same results, a ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Okay, then show me two RAW files (or DNGs) from any camera with different ISO settings and how they are different. NOT HOW THEY are different AFTER going through a RAW processor and a JPEG ...
  • Replied in true
    Yes, the non-uniformity from camera to camera is interesting, but more so when you look at any ISO above 100. Consider, DXO and DPReview put up images taken at different ISOs but have NO STANDARD ...
  • Some topics are too RAW for some people ;)
  • Thanks! I'm very familiar with Bill Claff.  Indeed, I gave him a Sigma DP1 so he could use it to fill in his chart.  When he measures ISO he isn't using the camera dial.  Instead, he uses ...
