My hope is one day images aquired by digital cameras will be just like the human eye.
In researching the capabilities of the human eye I read this artical on Pro Video Coalition.
It suggests the human eye has the Dynamic Range of 20 Stops but this is *not* available simulatenously. The eye actually adjusts its sensitivity to different lighting conditions (chemical changes in the eye and adjusting the iris) and can only see 6.5 Stops simulataneously. This range is known as the Brightness Adoption Level.
I find 6.5 Stops difficult to believe. Am I understanding this correctly?
So what would be the Brightness Adoption Level be of the Epic which is supposed to be 18 Stops with HDRx™™?
