All this emphasis on high dynamic range....HOW do you view it?!
From the days of slides vs. prints, we know we get a far greater dynamic range from a PROJECTED image than one printed on paper. CRT's, and LCD displays are limited, too!
From http://www.wisegeek.com …onitor.htm#didyouknowout:
"High dynamic range monitors have been developed to present nearly absolute blackness and higher levels of brightness, almost 3½ times brighter than what is ordinarily achieved on a conventional monitor, which can present only about 600:1 cd/m2. A high dynamic range monitor is capable of some 200,000:1 cd/m2. Conventional monitors cannot present absolute blackness simply by virtue of the residual brightness of the screen that is inherent in its being turned on. A high dynamic range monitor will present true blackness and a less overwhelming brightness as a result of technology that modifies a liquid crystal display (LCD) cathode ray tube using a modulated series of light emitting diodes (LED). Thus a picture on a high dynamic range monitor is closer to what the eye would register at the scene of what is pictured. A high dynamic range monitor presently costs some $49,000."
Have you spend $49k on your desktop PC monitor?!
