And in the cinema world, believe me some pretty damn serious pros talk about stuff like DR all the time and they take it very seriously.For the formats used in the cinema world, DR is very important and taken seriously. So it is interesting that Canon has a significant presence in the cinema world, and in the video world generally. For the past few years I've regularly seen videographers using Canon DSLRs and have yet to see one using Nikon or Sony.
Cinematographers are concerned about DR, sure. But just as they don't rely on a camera's autofocus to control where the camera is focused, they don't rely on the image capture medium to control the DR at capture. Rather, they control the DR of the scene by managing the lighting (floods, diffuser 'tents', grad NDs, etc.).
Canon has Ron Howard, Nikon has.......Ashton Kutcher.
Still photographers use the same methods to control DR as cinematographers. Of course.
