I have no experience with the S3. Also, I don't know what DR would be beyond the capabilities of a 16 bit image. It would also depend on how much one would want to stretch a particular range within the total DR.Elf_8 said:Interesting. Is this an effect that can be noticed with the Fuji S3 files ?Robin Casady said:Steps are caused by there being too few numeric values to represent tone values. Underexposing is just one way to get there.
If you increase the tonal values that can be recorded, and then compress them into a small bit depth, I think you may get steps at some point.
Someone else will have to do the math.
