Understanding A Camera’s Dynamic Range
 
By PCO-TECH Inc.

Since many camera manufacturers define dynamic range from a different point of view, a distinction should be made between the “dynamic range of an sCMOS, CMOS, or CCD image sensor,” “dynamic range of an analog-to-digital-conversion,” “usable dynamic range,” and “maximum dynamic range or SNR.” This article defines the different points of view for the dynamic range of camera systems and discusses when each term should be used.>
