"Everything that makes up and is used by the processor matters... but the processor doesn't matter."

... You two realise how you're contradicting yourselves there, right? Or did you skip the earlier part of the thread? We've already gone over how everything other than the sensor itself is encapsulated by the processor now (and this has been the way for over a decade now).

Problematic is that some of which “we” have gone over is bad information buried in good, for example that the basis for which we call dynamic range is the processor throwing away data from adjacent pixels of equal magnitude, when it is in actuality a function of full saturation and the lowest meaningful signal (i.e. where SNR is greater than 1).

What is lost in all this is that a processor merely does what it’s told to. It’s a series of logic gates configured programmatically by people. If you took the same logic from a digic 5 chip and ported it to digic 2 (assuming the image fits), they would act the same on the same supplied compatible data.

I think I've been trolled!!  Either that or these people are lumping way too much stuff into their definition of a processor.  Apparently including some "magic"!
