Canon's priority is DR at the top of the histogram (where it performs very well), and that suits me just fine.You completely misunderstand dynamic range.
Is this what they call "field day" in English :-> ?
'Having a field day', yes, except everyone with the exception of jrista would have interpreted Keith Reeder's statement as 'photographic latitude at the top end of the dynamic range', and he is absolutely right. Look at his examples:
I still find it laughable though that in the end, it really really, really, does seem like people are all too happy for Canon to not get their DR up to where the competition is
Which assumes, of course, that - unlike an old, out-of-date, underpowered PC - this supposed lack of DR actually stops us from getting the results we want.
Which it doesn't...
Canon's priority is DR at the top of the histogram (where it performs very well), and that suits me just fine.
Let me know when a Nikony sensor can do better than this from this, and you might have a point...
If you want to maximise the latitude from the Canon sensor you must establish how far you can push the 'over exposure', and it is often quite a long way.
If you go back to dilbert's example, in much of the picture the sensor was recording virtually no information. Try and lift this and surprise surprise, you are going to get a poor result.
