If you are looking directly at the RAW data, and in fact there is additional data hidden in the RAW file how are you obtaining that data?
That's the whole point, you can't just look at the RAW data and see the data that Canon hid in it.
Because you can look through the whole file and not notice any areas with hidden data.
I also have to say why would canon magically hide away certain low order bits of information in some special block?? And why they then add fake noise at the low end and put fake data in the main section??? That would be so bizarre.
And why does Canon's own DPP not magically reveal more dynamic range than when using non-Canon converters? And why using say ACR for both a 5D2 and D800 do the files from D800 visibly show a lot more dynamic range if ACR is hooking into secret data for Canon?QuoteOh, and sensors that should have greater Dynamic Range like the 5D Mk III over the 5D Mk II have more read noise, and that read noise can't actually be data?
They secretly overlay magic data in a random gaussian distribution and you are supposed to be able to read that? And again talk about bizarre.
You don't notice the banding?
Consistent uniform 'noise' patterns point to data.
When did I ever say that ADOBE Camera RAW was hooking into secret Canon data?
how come dpp doesn't reveal more DR than ACR then?
why does banding sometimes show in DPP too?
who would ever store data in that fashion? and for the random banding where is the hidden key in the file and why has nobody ever found one?
it's like saying you don't believe man ever landed on the moon, almost
