Dynamic Range

Playing with an old Olympus E-510 for a future blog post, I was wondering how well its 2007-vintage NMOS sensor would handle a shot with subtle variations of color. Walking to lunch the other day, I had an opportunity to make a test shot...

Don't get me wrong, I love all the added capability of more modern cameras. They do fantastic things. But the standard DSLRs from the big companies in 2007...Canon EOS Rebel XTi, Nikon D40X, Olympus EVOLT E-510...were absolutely up to the job of taking a decent photo.
