Guys, is it possible to get 16-bit images with FF DSLRs in theory? Would it give any real life benefit vs. 14-bit?
For current line of Canon sensors, even 14-bit is overkill, you will do just fine with 12-bit. The extra bits are only recording noise.
If you can make a sensor that outputs clean 65536 grades of shade, then a 16-bit signal path will unleash a lot more potential.
And no, I am not a drone.
