Interesting interview! Thanks for sharing this with us!

I'm just a little disapointed to hear the latitude was only 9 stops... I hope they still can improve that!

He said the latitude was we were a little bit down latitude compared to what it is now but it was still we still had about nine stops and it was actually pretty good and we gave it some fairly contrasty situations to deal with.

The Mysterium sensor has a dynamic range in excess of 66dB

I would take 9 stops and feathered highlights over 11 stops & a clipped look any day of the week and twice on Sunday. FWIW. (This is a general observation, not RED critique where I don't know yet, need to see more).

I'll just assume you meant to say "contrast range" or "dynamic range" rather than "latitude". Latitude is dependent upon - but not equal to - contrast range. Nevertheless, there is a big difference.

Yes, I actually meant "dynamic range" and I know there is a difference :) Thanks for reminding about it: most French DP I'm working with these days don't bother to make any difference between the two words :)

Hi Graeme,

It would be good to see a frame confirming what you say, in view of the DP's comments.

And when we've finished tweaking, that's the kind of thing we can do.
