Nevermind; found out it's CPS Central, which gets terrible reviews, which is a type of Insurance.

Typo or not, the model is HOT!
I thought I saw that a new MF camera was rumored to be coming out with a 16 bit AD. I'll have to search. MF might benefit from 14 bits actual.
I found it! The Ricoh Pentax 645Z. Lots of megapixels (51) and 16 bit AD converter. Dual SD slots and 4:3 format. Maybe it is just a big point and shoot
At $8500, its not a consumer grade camera, but its not a $30,000 MF body either. I'd like to play with one, but its not something to carry around.
...he said that canon camera bodies are 8-bit color and there are new 16-bit models of other cameras that increase the dynamic range of color.
Just keep in mind that sounds can come from more than one human orifice, or put another way, he was talking out of his a$$.
As rs states, Canon and Nikon both use 14-bit analog-to-digital converters (although some Nikon cameras allow you to save only 12-bit data to save space). 'Color' in Bayer sensors like those in Canon and Nikon dSLRs is provided by the color mask; each pixel sits under a Red, Green, or Blue filter, but the pixels themselves are monochromatic. A 14-bit ADC means the data contain 214 possible values for each pixel, with 'color' assigned based on the overlying filter. When the RAW file is demosaiced, the software interpolates the color data based on a cluster of pixels, so each pixel is assigned a color value that approximates the correct one (since each pixel really only saw R, G, or B).
Worth noting that no Canon or Nikon camera even uses all 14 bits of data; the maximum DR for Nikon (Sony, really) is just over 13-bits, and Canon tops out at under 12-bits. So those extra bits are basically wasted space in an image file.
I do have scientific cameras with 16-bit ADCs, but as rs also said, those don't exist in the consumer world.
All Canon DSLR's for the past several years have shot 14 bit raw.
I'm not aware of any DSLR from any manufacturer that shoots greater than 14 bit raw. Nikon certainly don't.
I never miss! How absurd!This makes me confused and that makes me cranky.
Don't my existing DSLR's have this already? Don't we call it Av?
What if you missed your subject in Av mode @ big apertures?
My chief weapon is surprise! Surprise and a 5Dmk2!
Err, a 5Dmk2 and surprise . . . my two weapons are a 5Dmk2 and surprise...and a 7D.
My *three* weapons are 5Dmk2, surprise, and 7D . . . and an almost fanatical devotion to using Primes . . .
Oh crud . . .
sanj must have either very strong arms, or a small boy to tote everything around for him
Ended up watching the videos again. OMG, my eyes are still tearing.
