In all examples to date the actual total DR difference is very small. Noise is very different which of course affects latitude and what is acceptable when exercising said latitude on the shadow side.
Yes. Canon sensors are not blocking up a lot sooner then an Exmor sensor (though they do block up a little sooner). But the noise makes detail in the lowest tones unacceptable, when pushed higher on the scale, for most photographic purposes.
Yes, let's refer to Ansel Adams to talk about sensor DR. Because sensors totally existed back then.
They did. They were called "film."
But the reality of it is that you measure dynamic range of sensors in a different way.
The definition and model of photographic dynamic range does not change based on capture medium.
Quoting Ansel Adams is particularly ironic, given how scientific and quantitative he was.
I think it's ironic that you praise him in one breath, then use a false statement to hand wave his entire body of work with the very next breath.
I think I understand what the actual problem is. You're not actually talking about camera DR.
Please stop knocking what you clearly don't understand.
Please stop committing fallacy after fallacy after...why even waist the keyboard strokes, you won't.
