Good afternoon, I currently studying (BSc) Film Production Technology and am writing a media technology report on sensors and cameras systems specifically looking at how full-frame sensors/camera systems perform better than cropped sensors in minimal light. The idea I was wondering people had some views on is whether “camera manufactures say their cameras produce 14-bits, however when you look at their own application notes, performance is shown to have a dynamic range of 1320:1” (Motion Video Productions, 2009) because in reality even an 11-bit camera should produce a dynamic range of 2048:1? Has anyone experienced this with cameras they have worked with before and would a 14-bit ADC actually produce 14-bit images because the bits maybe subjected to lower parts of the image for instance shadows as well? Many thanks Auberon
